Approximately 7,000 children in Pinellas County are hungry on the weekends. Hunger has a cure.
“Pack-A-Snack” is a community outreach and collaboration program of Pinellas Community Schools and Pinellas County area churches and nonprofit organizations. The program is designed to help address the problem of chronic hunger among elementary age children in our public schools. This has been estimated to be approximately 18% of all children are eligible for free lunch.
The items in the Pack-A-Snack are paid for and provided by a local area church or nonprofit organization.
