Snack Pack Program

With the Snack Pack Program, no District 5 child has to go hungry.

Snack Pack provides nutritional food for students who do not have enough to eat through the weekend. A growing need for the basics of a healthy meal has been identified in the District. The hope in supplying nutritional food is not only to fill a hungry belly, but also to give children the focus to be ready to learn come Monday morning with ought the worry of hunger.

Hundreds of students are provided food.

Snack Packs are delivered by school social workers and school counselors. During the 2022-23 school year, the Foundation is serving more than 700 students.

A Community Collaboration

The Snack Pack program is a collaborative effort between churches, civic organizations and the Foundation. The Foundation provides funding for weekend snack packs to all identified students.
