Alice Beattie, center, a volunteer with Lunch Boxes of Love food pantry, helps Sony Narssance during distribution at Avalon Elementary school on Thursday. 'There's a special place in my heart for people going through difficulty,' said Beattie. The program, funded by The Naples Children & Education Foundation, operates the pantry directly from the school. The initial in-school pantry was at Mike Davis Elementary, and due to its success, all others will be modeled after that one. The school pantries are being equipped with shelves from which families can choose the foods they like.
