Summer Snack Packs

Summer Snack Packs

Many children are left without adequate nutrition when school is not in session. Our Summer Snack Pack program is designed to fill this gap by providing healthy, kid-friendly, and easy to prepare snack foods to children at risk of hunger. Items include: pudding cups, crackers, granola bars, Easy Mac cups, jello cups, fruit, etc.

To better support the entire family, we created the Summer Snack Pack program to distribute extra food/snacks to families when visiting us over the summer. Studies have proven children facing hunger begin life at a serious disadvantage. Our Summer Snack Pack program, along with our normal client programs, help to break the cycle and provide families with hope for a brighter tomorrow. During the past two years, childhood hunger grew exponentially as children were out of school for months with no access to school meals. In the school year, we distribute our snack/microwaveable items to Backpack Buddies. They deliver to participating local schools and organizations and distribute discreetly to children at risk of hunger.

The concept of a snack pack program originated years ago when a school nurse noticed that some students were arriving at school on Monday mornings with headaches, dizziness, stomach aches and fatigue. She realized that these were the same students who were receiving free or reduced lunches. The nurse reached out to a local food pantry to organize a way to provide these students with nutritious weekend snacks.
