Kitchen on the Street, is a not for profit organization that houses food pantries at three Isaac Schools: Moya, Butler and Sutton Elementary Schools.

These food pantries provide food to Isaac students and families every Friday. Between the three schools, approximately 350 families are provided with enough meals to last them through the weekend.

If kids are hungry, they are not focused on learning. “Kitchen on the Street” is an important strategic partner for the Isaac School District,”   aid Superintendent, Dr. Mario Ventura.

In order for Isaac students to reach their full potential there needs to be an emphasis on the student’s social, emotional, and physical health as well as student achievement. In order to meet these needs, Isaac’s partnership with Kitchen on the Street ensures students and families do not go hungry during the weekend. At school each day Isaac also provides free/reduced lunch and breakfast to all students.
