Food for Families 2019

KATY (Covering Katy News) – Katy ISD’s Partners in Education is inviting the community to bring hope to families in need this holiday season.

Food for Families allows the community of Katy to bring a little joy into the homes of some of our students and their families.

Katy ISD identifies students for the program, and Partners in Education collects community and corporate donations.

Grocery gift cards, along with a note of support from the Katy ISD community, are then delivered to each student by a campus staff member. Last year, Food for Families raised $37,000. Since its inception in 2002, this initiative has raised over $228,000 and assisted more than 4,800 families. 

Contributions any amount are welcome. Those interested in helping these Katy ISD families experience a happier holiday season should donate by Dec. 6.

Donations are accepted online or by check, made out to Katy ISD Food for Families and mailed to Partners in Education, Katy ISD ESC, 6301 South Stadium Lane, Katy 77494. 

Food for Families, a Katy ISD Partners in Education yearly initiative, unites our Katy ISD staff and community in holiday support for select students and their families.
