Finley Food Pantry History

Finley schools are committed to assuring that our students are able to come to school healthy and focused on being their best.  This initiative seeks to provide access for students to nutrition both inside and outside of the school walls.  In December 2018, Finley School District secured a $2600 grant from Nutrien (formerly Agrium and located in the Finley community), who had approached Finley School Counselor Sonya Bell with the food solutions proposal early in the year.  The support to Second Harvest comes from a major grant provided by Bechtel to combat childhood hunger across multiple school districts.  Now, thanks to these funds and many local partnerships, Second Harvest stocks Finley's Food Pantry with non-perishable food and fresh produce for Finley families.  Both students and adults are welcome to pick up food from the pantry, and no identification is required. 

This incredible community resource is only possible through the added support of the Kennewick Kiwanis (Finley Satellite), Christian Life Fellowship, and the Finley Booster Club. Finley school counselors Sonya Bell and Rebekah Duty sought assistance from district staff members Laurie Tufford and Terri McGaughey to bring their plans for the pantry to fruition.
