The Imago Dei Family Pantry – generously stocked three times per week by Trader Joe’s at Campbell and Limberlost, and regularly stocked with non-perishables by Midwest Food Bank of Arizona – is open three afternoons a week when school is in session. It is open to all school families, including families of alumni, and is a vital part of the school’s service to the community.
The pantry was equipped by the generous donation of a commercial refrigerator and freezer by Casas Adobes Rotary Club of Tucson. A generous grant from Fry’s parent company’s foundation, Kroger Foundation, helps keep the pantry stocked with toiletries, paper goods, and other necessities. Other participating donors include Iskashitaa Refugee Network and friends of the school who contribute clothing and usable household goods.
Overflow perishables are donated by the school to Gospel Rescue Mission/Tucson Homeless Services.
The pantry is enthusiastically run by the awesome staff of IDMS Family Services program, assisted by a number of volunteers from school families. Thank you!
