How is the pantry different from the SnackPack Program?
An onsite school pantry is available to students to allow children to attain additional food items to assist in feeding the whole family, not just one child. The SnackPack Program is aimed to provide 3 meals for one child on the weekends. The items in the packs are child friendly and easy to prepare.
