Snack Pak 4 Kids is a weekend backpack program that began serving children at Will Rogers Elementary on Labor Day weekend, September 2010. A Bushland couple discovered Amarillo was the largest city west of Dallas without a weekend backpack program. They started Snack Pak 4 Kids in their kitchen, serving just 10 kids.
With the support of our donors and volunteers, the program has grown to serve more than 7,000 elementary, middle and high students in 42 school districts. More than 4,000 volunteers serve annually in Amarillo alone.
