32nd Annual Pantry Raid

2022 Pantry Raid

Tyler High and Tyler Legacy are came together again this year before their big football rivalry to raise meals for hungry East Texans as part of the 32nd Annual Pantry Raid.

The East Texas Food Bank and the Tyler Independent School District host the annual event. Since the pantry raid began in 1991, students have raised more than 1.6 million meals!

This year students raised 151,163 meals, including over $27,000 in monetary donations and 16,306 pounds of nonperishable food items.

Monetary donations will support ETFB’s programs that serve Tyler ISD students, such as the BackPack Program and Kids Café. More than 8,700 East Texas children receive BackPacks every weekend filled with nutritious, kid-friendly food to help last them until Monday morning. The Kids Cafe© and Afterschool Snack Program served over 115,000 meals and over 31,000 snacks in the 2021 – 2022 school year.
