About

The children at Four Directions Family Center look forward to a healthy snack bag assembled with love by members of the surrounding community.

If you, a group of your friends, or your company would like to donate assembled snack bags for children to eat after therapy, during classes at our preschools, or at our Drop-In Childcare, please adhere to the following guidelines:

Healthy Snack Bag Contents

  • Due to possible allergies, please refrain from including any items that contain peanuts.
  • For health purposes, all items should be prepackaged from the manufacturer.
  • We are unable to accept food items that have been divided and placed into food storage bags.
    • Example: Dividing a large bag of pretzels into several smaller bags by hand.

Content Suggestions

  • Juice Boxes
  • Bottled water
  • Raisins
  • Dried Fruit
  • Granola Bars (no nuts)
  • Crackers
  • Pretzels
  • Apples Sauce
  • Fruit Cups in Water
  • Fruit snacks (sugar free if possible)
  • Trail Mix (no nuts)
  • Plastic Utensils (Spoon/Fork)
  • Napkin

NOTE: Each bag should cost under $5.

Here are a couple of crafty ways to make this activity even more fun ...

  • Use paper bags and have the children decorate with drawings, stickers, etc. (if doing so, please refrain from any religious and/or political references)
  • Place each item in a pile along the outer edge of a table/countertop and have the children fill the bags while moving in a circle. Video the assembly line and then speed it up for high-speed fun.
  • Take photos before/during/after and share online (remember to tag The Family Partnership) and/or share with your friends/family. I often share these photos internally and externally to show off some of the great work our volunteers are doing.
