The Good Deed Grocery is a School Based Support Center for students, run by students. Career and Technical Education students have the opportunity to work in the Good Deed Grocery to earn Work Based Learning hours. We also offer community service hours to students who have "late arrival" or "early release"!

The Good Deed Grocery is currently accepting donations of non-perishable food! We are very appreciative of the following items: pasta, dried beans, rice, soup mixes, canned protein, spices and any other shelf-stable products. Our students do take their groceries home on the bus, so the lighter the item is to carry, the better!

Orders made to online with the Good Deed Grocery remain confidential. Orders are identified by student number. We work hard to keep the Good Deed Grocery a private and positive place to get support! We are accepting unopened personal care products for our grocery!

The Good Deed Grocery is stocked, staffed and started by students! A Career & Technical Education program, students learn how to run a business, use social media to advertise, manage others, purchase products, safely prepare food--and learn how important it is to give back to their community!
