Because Kids Deserve Better
Two days is too long. No child should go hungry over the weekend. Thousands of children go hungry in our community, many of these kids are fed by the Pinellas County school breakfast and lunch programs. So what happens on the weekends when school isn’t in session? Kids go hungry, and that’s why Pack-a-Sack was created.
We’re proud to provide approximately 975 children in our community with a Pack-a-Sack on a weekly basis. Our hope is to reach even more kids with your support.
Send Them Home with Hope
Every kid deserves to thrive. The physical and psychological effects of returning to school on Monday with an empty stomach is nothing short of heartbreaking.
This is where Pack-a-Sack comes to the rescue. It bridges the food gap so kids can be fortified with nourishment when school’s out. Each Pack-a-Sack contains 12 items to ensure kids have food to sustain them over the weekend.
