CENTRAL POINT, Ore -- The food pantry at Crater High School helps at-risk students, school officials told NewsWatch 12.

“There is no judgment here this is just a place, what do you need and how can we help,” Crater High School Counselor Michelle Grush said.

Grush started the pantry at Scenic Middle School where she used to work and she brought the same idea to Crater High School two years ago.

“I just saw a need in our community,” Grush said.

Grush knows all too well the struggle that these students are going through.

“I went to 19 different high school’s before I graduated and we were very much in poverty growing up,” Grush said.

The food pantry is in dire need of food, school officials said. They are looking for any non-perishable items such as cup of noodles, crackers or protein bars.

If you are interested in helping, you can drop off the food at Crater High School.

“These are the invisible kids, those that people don’t know their life story,” Grush said.
