The SNACPack program is designed to meet the needs of hungry children on weekends, when other resources are not available. The program provides backpacks filled with food that is child-friendly, shelf-stable, and easily-consumed. Bags are packed each week by volunteers and discreetly distributed to participating children every Friday afternoon.

The SNACPack program will be collecting goods at Dorothy Nolan. They are looking for 4 items which include:

  • Protein Bars
  • Mac & Cheese, Water Only type (Ex. Easy Mac, Velveeta)
