On December 15, 2016 Friends donated over 200 new books to Derry Township students who participate in the Cocoa Packs program. Cocoa Packs addresses the food needs of Derry Township students who are on the Free and Reduced Lunch program. In 2000, 4% of Derry Township students received free and reduced lunches. In 2015, this number jumped to 19%. Cocoa Packs is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. It does not receive federal, state or local funds and does not use school tax funds for its food donations.
