The program provides food support to school students by sending home a bag of healthy snacks for the weekend.
The program started in 2013 serving 98 children and grew to more than 200 students in less than a year. More than 700 children are currently enrolled and more are regularly being added as funding allows.
The food is packed by volunteers and delivered to schools weekly.
Approximately 19,700 bags were packed and delivered during the 2018-2019 school year.
We are a 100% volunteer organization.
Any child in Head Start or any Marshall Public School student who wants extra food assistance for the weekend, with a parent or guardian’s consent, is eligible to participate in the program.
