   School Market Program: Empowering Students One Meal at a Time
The Eagles Market at Astronaut High School resembles a mini grocery store. Shelves are stocked with snack foods, bottled water, canned goods, and other food and personal items. The only difference is these items are available for the taking!
The School Market program, offered by Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, was created to combat the stigma that teens face when asking for help or accessing resources. Schools with a 50 percent free or reduced meal rate or higher are eligible to participate in the program. However, students are not required to individually identify or qualify for the program. In fact, the entire school
is eligible to participate. All students can come by the market for something as small as a snack or as large as groceries to take home and provide for their families, at no cost.
Since opening in August, Astronaut’s Eagles Market has

Endeavour Elementary Launches First School Food Pantry
and complete the on-line application.
Endeavour Elementary,
A Community Partnership School, is the hub of the Cocoa community,
a “safe zone” focused on student success — in school and
beyond. As one of the first Community Partnership Schools implemented in Florida, Endeavour strives to increase student success at school, provide access to resources to improve physical and emotional health, increase parental involvement and empower students to shine.
As many Endeavour students struggle with food insecurity, which can significantly impact their ability to concentrate in class, the school recently launched its first Endeavour
Community Partnership School Food Pantry.
Open the second and fourth Friday of every month from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm, the pantry is housed in the school cafeteria and provides supplies of non-perishable food, toiletries and community resources in a location that is comfortable and convenient for Endeavour families. Local community groups such as from the Church of Viera, Satellite High School-ROTC, West Shore Junior/ Senior High School, Keiser University and The Children’s Hunger Project are supporting this effort by hosting food drives and organizing donations. The Central Brevard Sharing Center provided additional assistance by helping the Community Partnership School Operations Team determine a process for the pantry, and UCF students assisted by sorting donations.
Endeavour is hoping to expand its community partnerships to help establish the necessary connections to ongoing food sources, funding, community resources, and volunteers.
