Thank you!

Hello MUSD Families!

The Milpitas Food Pantry provides food assistance to Milpitas and Alviso residents. At this time, as you may guess, the NEED is far greater. Each year MUSD participates in the Jack Emery Food Drive. It is one of our Student Council's biggest events. However, due to the pandemic, this year our elementary schools will be participating a bit differently.

Here is our Jack Emery Food Drive website for more information and inspiration! Please check it out with your kids - this is a great learning opportunity for them. The drive will run from November 20th- December 18th.

ALL monetary and food donations will be accepted directly at the Milpitas Food Pantry (1440 S. Main Street) or at this link:

With gratitude,

MUSD Elementary Schools
