Return to Be Involved

Tutu’s Pantry food bank

Tutu’s Pantry is an FTME program that provides families with food for weekend meals during the school year and with a Thanksgiving meal in November.
The pantry program is currently paused until parent volunteers are allowed to return to school.  In the meantime, Backpack Brigade is providing weekend bags through Thurgood Marshall’s Family Support Worker.


  • Who can apply? Any family with a student now enrolled at Thurgood Marshall is eligible. You may start (or end) at any time.  Please contact Danny Hawkins to apply.
  • To receive a Thanksgiving Meal: All families enrolled in the weekly program will receive a meal. Any TM family may request a Thanksgiving meal.  Details for how to request for Thanksgiving 2021 will be in the Pup Press.


  • How do I donate? Because the program is paused, we can not accept donations at this time.
  • Want to volunteer or have questions? Please contact Tutu’s Pantry Program Coordinator, Trina Wright, at
