Here's the plan:
We will leave from the Weddell campus and drive to the food bank in San Jose. The address is 4001 N 1st St, San Jose, CA 95134. It's about a 10-15 minute drive from the school. The visit at the food bank itself should only be about 1-1.5 hours. All parents who can drive would need to be registered as parent drivers with the school and will need to arrive at the Weddell campus about 5 minutes before we plan to leave.
