Viking Food Pantry created at GHS

   GHS's Supporting our Students (S.O.S.) Committee -- with assistance from the Student Senate -- has created the Viking Pantry, a food pantry that provides non-perishable foods and hygiene items for GHS students. 

   Students are invited via email to complete and submit Google orders during the school week. Bags are filled and then delivered in a confidential manner to recipients on Fridays.   

   Donations can be brought to the GHS Main Office during school hours or placed in drop boxes located at the GHS main entrance, the gymnasium entrance and the Ferguson Field entrance. Learn more.
   The food pantry was featured on the Inspired website. See the article.
