Hilton Education Foundation holding Hilton Cadet Cupboard Food Drive – March 10

Hilton, NY – The Hilton Education Foundation will be holding a Food Drive for the Cadet Cupboard on Saturday, March 10 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Hilton High School, 400 East Ave., Hilton. Food may be dropped off at the back door near the tennis courts.

Cadet Cupboard, a food pantry for the students in the Hilton Central School District, provides children in need with essential, nutritious food that they can subtly take home and safely prepare on their own. For $6, a child in need in the community can be fed for an entire weekend.

“Food is a basic need for everyone, but especially for growing children,” said Hilton Food Service Director Scott Ziobrowski, who coordinates the program. “Childhood nutrition is critical to their mental and physical development.”

Donations of kid-friendly, non-perishable items are needed. For a complete list of items, visit www.hiltoneducationfoundation.org/cadetcupboard/index.html. Please no perishable or glass items. Monetary donations are also greatly appreciated. One Hundred (100%) percent of all Cadet Cupboard donations go directly to the students. 

The Hilton Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit led by a seven-member Board of Directors that is comprised of volunteer members from the community, business and education, and is a member of the American Schools Foundation Alliance (asfalliance.org). The Hilton Education Foundation does not receive any funding from the Hilton Central School District.

For more information, please contact Scott Ziobrowski, director of School Food Service, at 392-1000, ext. 2152.
