Students who are currently enrolled in our Backpack OR Powerpack program will be automatically enrolled in our Summer Pack program, unless their parent or guardian decides to opt out.

What's Summer Pack you ask? Summer Pack is a FREE summer extension of our Backpack and Powerpack Program. Hunger doesn't end at the end of the school year, and we want to ensure that students continue to be fed and nourished throughout the active and busy summertime.

Students who enroll in the Summer Pack program will receive a weekend food box delivered right to their doorstep during each month of summer break (3 boxes total). Each food pack contains well-balanced breakfast, lunch and snack items for the weekend.
