pack-a-sack2

A program close to our heart is Pack-A-Sack. We are partnering with Dickenson Elementary and delivering bags of food and hope each Friday for chronically hungry children to take home. We started the 2016 school year with 15 bags each week and ending in May 2017 with 45 bags delivered weekly. For the 2016-2017 school year, we delivered approximately 1,146 bags. We provide 14-16 items in each bag that includes 2 breakfast items, 1 milk, 1 juice, 2 proteins, veggie cups, fruit cups and a few snacks. We cannot use microwavable items such as soups, and other meal items, so we ask that you refer to list below for proven items that work currently for this program. In this case, smaller is better which is why we have listed on some items the ounces for that particular product.

Juice (Capri Sun or Juice boxes)
White shelf milk (8 oz. containers)
Boost Kid Essentials (8.25 oz – any flavor)
Carnation Breakfast essentials drink (8 oz)
