Healthy snacks are purchased and delivered to schools for families with children during extended school breaks. This program helps reduce the financial strain experienced by low-income families who typically rely on the school lunch program and who struggle to make ends meet when these meals need to be provided at home during breaks.
This program provides for holiday snack bags in the communities of Weed, Dunsmuir, Mt. Shasta, and McCloud, where nearly 90% of enrolled students are eligible for the free or reduced lunch program. This means that during times when school is not in session, these children no longer have access to nutritionally balanced meals. More than 650 families have been served.
