Crandall ISD staff and students handed out food to dozens of families during the first montly FoodforKids event.

Crandall Independent School District, in partnership with The Center and the North Texas Food Bank, held its first monthly food distribution this past Saturday. 

The first drive, labeled Food4Kids, took place at both Compass Elementary School and Dietz Elementary School in Crandall. The distribution took place over a two-hour window with invitations extending to all CISD families, with 122 families receiving food that day. 

“It was a huge success,” said Katrina Spottsville, a social and emotional learning coordinator at CISD. “It was exciting to be able to give back to the community. People are in need.”

About 15 volunteers, including CISD students and staff, served families by packing their trunks full with boxes of food, including milk, peanut butter, and non-perishable snacks. 

The next food distribution is scheduled for March 20, again at Compass Elementary and Dietz Elementary schools.

“We had a really good to start,” said Spottsville. “I’m hoping and praying that the number of people we can impact increases.”
