We are excited about creating opportunities to engage and involve local high school students as part of our leadership team. Our Junior Board and Student Ambassador programs are unique opportunities for high school students to learn about community service through hands-on participation in the leadership of GO Pantry. Led by Dr. Holly Danneman and Matt McMintire, our student ambassadors take an active part in the vision of GO Pantry. ​

All GO Pantry Ambassadors go through a formal selection process where they complete applications and interview with a selection committee. Once selected, they work together as a team to help GO Pantry combat childhood hunger in Northern Kentucky. These exceptional students work hard to raise awareness about childhood hunger in their schools and communities. They facilitate food drives and fund raising events. They take the podium to speak to groups about childhood hunger. They work events in the warehouse and bring new students to volunteer events. This great group of smart, active, passionate student leaders is helping GO Pantry move the community into action as we fight to feed hungry kids in Northern Kentucky.
