Keri Pinard, Chef Manager, Food & Nutrition Services Holyoke Public Schools
The Rachel’s Table Teen Board partners with Sodexo at the Holyoke Public Schools by donating thousands of pounds of food, assisting in filling backpacks to send to homeless students, and continuing to raise donations - both monetary and food. The Weekend Backpack program provides nutritious food to students who otherwise have little or no access to food during the weekends. It is a great privilege for Sodexo and the Holyoke Public Schools to work with a group of young adults that care so much about the well-being of others. We cannot thank them enough for their continued support and generosity to our program and without them, we would not be able to fill as many backpacks for the students.
