Kid Packs Make the Difference

Kid Packs ContentsKid Packs are a special pack of kid-friendly foods that provides a source of weekend nutrition during the school year for kids at risk of hunger due to circumstances in their homes.

How to Get a Kid Pack:

If you know a child who would benefit from having a Kid Pack each week to support their nutrition over the weekend, talk to their school counselor and they will set this up for them.

What Goes in a Kid Pack?

    • Milk
    • Juice
    • Low-Sugar Granola Bars

What is Kamut?

Helena Food Share is proud to provide locally-grown Kracklin’ Kamut in Kid Packs. Kracklin’ Kamut is ancient Kamut grain, organically grown in Montana and carefully roasted in small batches at their plant in Big Sandy, MT (pop. 600). They use Montana-grown, organic, cold-pressed, hi-oleic safflower oil. It is fresh-pressed near town by The Oil Barn. Lightly seasoned with sea salt from ancient caves in Utah, this simply clean product is a satisfying snack.
