Local

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – ICT Community Fridge Project first brought you their neighborhood fridge back in August, and now, they’re expanding to local schools. Teachers are calling it a blessing in disguise.

Tara Rodgers, a teacher at South High School, and Amy Nguyen, a junior at the school, said they’re thrilled to have a little extra help for students during a time of need. The refrigerator was installed less than a month ago, and it has already helped to feed hundreds of students.  

It allows students to grab a snack before or after class. It also allows students to take home a grocery bag full of food to have extra meals at home.

“It’s free, it’s easy, it’s just there to make it as simple as possible and to help as many people as possible,” said Rodgers.

“It continues to bring the issue of food insecurities to the schools,” said Nguyen.

ICT Community Fridge organizers hope to get more fridges in schools in the coming months.
