Sacks of Snacks was created because of a need, children in our community were going hungry. We were contacted by a local school asking us to help some students who would not have any food for their school break. We took action and provided some groceries for these children, but it became apparent that this was just a Band-Aid to a bigger problem. We met with some of our local school principlas and community non profits. Out of this meeting Sacks of Snacks came into existence.
We now serve nine Dearborn County Schools for a total of 450 children. We provide a weekly bag of food for these children to have food to eat on the weekends.
To qualify for this program, the parent will fill out a form that is sent home by the school.
