snack pak 4 kids
 

We all know children who have breakfast and lunch provided for them free of charge at school during the week, but have you ever stopped to think about what those kids do for food during the weekend?

Snack Pak 4 Kids aims to end weekend hunger for students by providing a backpack filled with nutritional snacks to those needy children each Friday of the school year. Traditionally the AH Rotary and the Cambridge PTO have helped fund this program at Cambridge. Every year we ask for volunteers to help put it into action.

About 4 times during the school year we ask for volunteers to help us create an assembly line to pack bags of food (referred to as Snack Paks) that will be put into the appropriate students’ backpacks. This would be on a designated Wednesday evening. Each evening time slot is a 1-hour commitment but volunteers are welcome to sign up for more than one if they’d like.  

Every Friday mornings we are looking for a volunteer to help us discretely deliver the Snack Paks to designated teachers from 8:00am-9:00am. There will be a member of the PTO assigned to that Friday as well. Please come help us deliver Snack Paks by volunteering through our SignUp Genius link. The website will give you the options to volunteer and remind you of the upcoming event(s) via email reminders.

Snack Pak 4 Kids (SP4K) wants to send out a BIG thank you to Cambridge Girl Scout Troops #490 and 978 who helped with the Peanut Butter jar drive in November!  

Because of the troops’ efforts and the generosity of everyone who contributed, SP4K has been able to supplement all of the bags that were distributed for the Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks.  

In addition to that achievement, there were enough jars collected to also be able to take care of the Spring and Summer break bags!  

That’s an ENTIRE year of extra peanut butter at times when the students who are enrolled in the program need them the most!
