SANGER, Texas — A Texas high school created a grocery store where food insecure students and their families can shop using a point system accumulated from doing good deeds.
“How often can a school say they have a grocery store inside their walls?” said principal Anthony Love. “A lot of our students, they come from low socioeconomic families. It’s a way for students to earn the ability to shop for their families.”
The store does not accept cash. Students use a point system and redeem them for items in the store. Students can earn points through positive office referrals and helping clean up around the classrooms and campus.
