How Does It Work?

Volunteers pack the food bags weekly for each school.  The food bags are delivered to school by Friday morning. Social workers and/or teachers at each school put the bags into the child’s backpack before weekend dismissal. The entire process is confidential and only the school personnel know which students are receiving the bags.

How Are the Children Selected?

Everything we do is coordinated through our school partners. Schools advise us on the needs of their students and identify children who will benefit from receiving a bag of food for the weekend. 

What Is In The Food Bag?

All of the food we provide is shelf stable and ready-to-eat because many of the children we serve will need to prepare it themselves, often with limited access to a refigerator, stove or microwave.  Each bag includes meals and snacks to last them for the weekend.
