Food for kids over the weekend
A large number of our pantry families with school age
children also qualify for the free and reduced lunch program at school. Years ago, we realized some of these families
struggle to provide breakfast and lunch over the weekend.
Since these children would be going hungry over the weekend,
the Sack Snacks program was formed.
Sack Snacks are take home sacks of snacks prepared throughout
the school year by Perry Helping Perry volunteers. They are
distributed to all the schools in the Perry Local School District and discreetly given to qualifying children. In the 2019-2020 school
year, we distribute 360 sack snacks a week.
Each Sack Snack contains:
2 Snack items
On long weekends we add an extra days worth.
This way the school age children that otherwise may
not get enough to eat, now do.
Check out our calendar or Facebook page
for the sack snack packing schedule.
Sack snacks are completely funded by donations.
