Snack pack Program
The mission of the Snack Pack Program is to help alleviate child hunger by providing hungry children with nutritious and easy to prepare food at times when other resources are not available, such as weekends and school vacations. The program provides snackpacks filled with food that is child-friendly, non-perishable, and easily consumed. Snackpacks are discreetly distributed to children on the last day before the weekend or holiday vacation.
Each snack pack contains food that provides a child to have 3 meals a day during Saturday and Sunday when they are not in school. Each item can be prepared by the child if necessary.
Currently the Snack pack Program is provided in the following schools:
Hardin County: Kenton Elementary
Putnam County: Ottawa Elementary School
The need for the Snackpack program continues to grow in our 11 county area. Support for the Snackpack Program can come in the form of monetary, providing shelf stable food, or volunteering.
