Local groups donate $500 to Rome High School food pantry

Communities in Schools of Rome-Floyd County partnered with Helping Hands Ending Hunger to provide the Rome High School food pantry $500 in funds. “We understand that nonacademic barriers like not having enough food, or nutritious food, is an impediment to students’ success,” Executive Director Gregory Wooten said. “So, we try to knock down those nonacademic barriers so that children can be successful academically.”
