Canterbury Cares

The Associated Churches' Neighborhood Food Network offers families food once a month at no charge through a network of local, Allen County food pantries in churches and social agencies. Canterbury School is a supporter of the Neighborhood Food Network (NFN) thanks to our annual Food Drive, which takes place this year November 15-19, the week before Thanksgiving break.

The NFN provides a five-day supply of food to prepare nutritious and balanced meals to families in need. Learn more about the NFN here.

Last year the Canterbury School community raised more than $3,600 and donated more than 4,000 pounds of food! We're hopeful for even more in 2021.
