Message from Food for Kids Weekend Pack-A-Snack

Overview of Services

Every week of the school year, volunteers pack a bag of groceries which includes breakfast, lunch and dinner items along with snacks for children who are food insecure.  The bags are delivered to the schools each Thursday morning by additional volunteers, and are taken home by the children that same afternoon. Through a careful inventory and frugal purchase of food items, the cost per bag is less than $10. In the 2021-2022 school year we are averaging about 350 children per week. Recently, we added Staunton River Middle School, where we provide a small bag of items for the weekend that students may discreetly pick up as needed from the school counselor's office.

 

Our annual budget is approximately $120,000, funded entirely by donations.
