In Ohio, 1,351,090 people are facing hunger and of them 412,670 are children fighting hunger.
A Snack Pack contains food that provides each 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.
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.
