Kids Helping Kids
Join us in packing bags of food for Pantry Packs. Kids as yound as 3 will be packing bags.
Pantry Packs, is a local non-profit charity with the goal of keeping hungry kids fed. There are young kids in our own community without enough food at home over the weekends and long holiday breaks. The only proper meal some of these kids get during the week is their free school lunch.
Pantry Packs provides a bag of food to kids (identified by school counselors and teachers) to take home.
This event is open to all ages.

There will be tables set up with junior high /high school volunteers to help the kids pack their bags. We already have some food donations so the tables will be set up with food in advance. Donations are welcome and very much appreciated, but not required.
The young kids with the help of a parent and or volunteer will travel along the assembly line and fill their bag. When they have finished a bag they can ring the bell and get a tattoo and sticker. They can make as many bags as they like (provided there is still food).
We will provide hot chocolate and a few snacks.
There will be a craft item for kids too.

Peanut Butter/Jelly in plastic jars
