The Power Pack Program (P3) was created to provide elementary school aged children with a food pack for the weekend. These packs include 2 breakfast items, 2 lunch items, 2 dinner items, 2 snacks, and 2 drinks. These packs allow the children to be certain they will not be hungry over the weekend. This program was very successful last year but we need your help to continue feeding the kids!
This opportunity is flexible and can be conducted whenever and wherever you choose! You can do a food drive or purchase the food, assemble the packs with family and friends, and then deliver the packs to Food for Others when you have completed them.
The following link will give you an idea of what a power pack looks like, along with a kit that shows how you, your family, friends, organization or business can help out!
Each pack weighs about 3lbs and contains 10 items in each pack, 2 each for breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus 2 snacks and 2 drinks.
