  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 8 people are interested

Snack packs are given to our program participants who arrive at our Welcome Center to access supportive services. Being able to offer 'quick fuel' in the form of a small resource like this creates a positive community atmosphere in our spaces while clients access needed services. Snack packs are typically sandwich-size zip lock bags, paper lunch bags, or drawstring bags that include non-perishable foods, water bottles on the side, etc. Volunteers purchase supplies and assemble bags on their own time, then schedule a drop-off with Agate staff (contact info below). Below is our suggested list of what to include (feel free to include as few or as many of these items as you're able, into bags with 3-4 snack foods per bag):

  • Beef Jerky
  • Protein shake
  • Granola or soft textured Nutrition Bars
  • Trail Mix
  • Pudding Cups
  • Fruit Snacks
  • Small Cookie Packs
  • Small Cracker Packs
  • Bottled Water or Water Bottles (on the side if using a snack bag that doesn't accommodate their size)
  • Juice Boxes/Bags
  • Snack Crackers
  • Candy
  • Dried Fruit
  • Plastic Utensil Packets, or Reusable Utensils

Guidelines and notes (read before assembly):

  • Products included in packs must be unopened and prior to their Best By, Use By, or Expiration date.
  • We also accept (and greatly appreciate!) individual donations of each of these listed items. Delivery can be arranged through a drop-off coordinated with Abby (info below) or easily arranged and delivered to us through a third party via our Amazon Wishlist.
  • If you would like toadd any notecards/messages, or items that are not listed above, you must text/call/or email Abby (info below) beforehand to ensure that the Donation Center is able to accept them. Thank you so much!

Have Questions? Ready to schedule a drop-off?

Contact Abby Abele (Community Organizer & In-Kind Donation Manager) by text or call at 612-715-0449, or by email at abigail.abele@agatemn.org.
