D21 Works With Food Bank On Establishing Wahtonka Food Pantry

North Wasco County School District 21 is working with the Oregon Food Bank and other organizations to establish a food pantry at the Wahtonka Community School.  D-21 Superintendent Candy Armstrong says the district would provide the space, with others staffing it.  Armstrong says the Wahtonka campus is already the location of a number of programs, and there is a need for a food pantry easy to access on the west side of The Dalles.  Armstrong notes hunger impacts education tremendously, saying when a child and family is worried about whether they can eat or not, it’s hard to concentrate on academics.
