This recent winter blast made it difficult for many families to get food, and even though schools were closed, Family Resource Centers opened their doors.

Pearl-Cohn High School was just one of several Metro Schools where food was given to those who needed it on Thursday. We visited the school to see the distribution in action.

The following schools offered food from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Thursday:

  • Antioch High School 
  • Davis Early Learning Center
  • Glencliff High School
  • Madison Middle School
  • Maplewood High School 
  • Tusculum Elementary School 
  • Fall Hamilton Elementary School
  • Cole Elementary School
  • Park Ave Elementary School
  • Pearl Cohn High School
  • Napier Elementary School

In addition to food, coats were also made available for those in need.

School officials said they handed out most of the food boxes Thursday, but they did have some left.

Pearl-Cohn High School and Cole Elementary did not run out of boxes and are expected to have some Friday. They will be open tomorrow from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. Two Rivers Middle will open their food pantry to Families from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. 

Anyone in need can also call the Metro Schools Information line at 615-259-4636 to find out more.
