Student-run grocery store takes good deeds as payment, helps tackle food insecurity

One high school is helping fight food insecurity with a student-run grocery store that uses paying it forward as capital.

During a particularly difficult year for millions struggling to make ends meet and get food on the table, Linda Tutt High School in Sanger, Texas, partnered with a local nonprofit to ensure students and their families have the necessities that they might not otherwise be able to afford.

Principal Anthony Love told ABC News the idea initially came from First Refuge Ministries, a nonprofit that approached the school with the idea “because there’s been a need identified in our community.”

“It didn’t take me long to see all the possibilities that the store could bring, especially with it being run by students,” he said. “The other aspect [is] giving back to the community during these challenging times — even if it’s just a little.”
