Columbus East High School Food Pantry



    The Columbus East Food Pantry is open to East students and their families, as well as to other BCSC students and their families. Research shows that 17% of school-aged students in Bartholomew County are food insecure, not always knowing where their next meal will come from or when it will be.  The Columbus East Food Pantry is one effort to help alleviate hunger in our students.
