Derby Public Schools Donates 12,935 Items to Annual Community Food Drive!

Derby Public Schools participated in a community food drive on February 26-29, 2024 to benefit Derby Community Family Services, which runs the Derby Food Bank. The school district partners with the Derby Chamber of Commerce and Derby Noon Lions Club for this event. Maintenance staff started early this morning picking up the items from schools and bringing them all to one spot to be counted. The food items collected were counted and sorted by DTEC (Derby Transition Educational Center) and Project SEARCH students. Our students, staff and families across the district donated a total of 12,935 items! This is the most we have collected in the nine years of this food drive. 

Thank you to everyone who participated!
