Kid Packs Make the Difference

Kid 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 receiving a Kid Pack each week to support their nutrition over the weekend, talk to their principal or school counselor. They will make sure a Kid Pack is in the child’s bag each Friday to take home for the weekend during the school year.
