There are an estimated 13 million children in the U.S. who are food insecure. And that hunger affects the entire community. When kids don’t receive consistent meals, they’re unable to focus in school. This can have a severe impact on their education and developmental growth.
You can be the difference between a child succeeding in school or going home hungry.
Starting a weekend hunger relief program in your community – or applying the SP4K model to an existing program – can be a challenge. You’ll need to gather administrative support, find eager volunteers, collect supplies, and more. And all of that can be very overwhelming.
We’re here to help!
We created the Snack Pak 4 Kids Training Manual to help individuals like you start their own SP4K program. The manual breaks down the process into six easy steps so you have everything you need to establish a self-sustaining program, gain resources and support, and make a difference in your community.
“In my class, each student is asked to bring snacks. I would help this student out when it was his time. The last time, he said, ‘Don’t worry about it. I’ve got it!’ He showed up with 18 boxes of Apple Jacks for his class. He had been saving them from his Snack Pak, and he was so PROUD!” - Teacher
