Backsnack Kids

We’re often asked “how do you feed your BackSnack kids in the summer?” For many children, summer is a long-anticipated break from school, fun and/or trips with family and friends. For many BackSnack recipients, summer may be a time with less food, as access to free or reduced cost breakfast and lunch is not available.

However, many of these same children participate in summer school and extend their access to those same hot meals and the BackSnack program.  In the Northland, all of our participating schools districts extended their BackSnack distribution through the five weeks of summer school. Several local food pantries also ensure their information is sent home, encouraging families to visit. This will help with the gap until school begins in mid-August.










 You Helped Me

Parenting is 24/7 especially when our children are young.  One of our supporters shared a story that really touched us and we want to share it with all of you.

Brushing teeth before bed with your children is a routine we all remember. Imagine using that time to educate your young children about other children in need and begin to cultivate a life of altruism. This wise mother attended our ladies annual Christmas tea and brought home our black/white flyer featuring a little boy’s face with three sentences. She taped that flyer to the bathroom mirror and every night, for weeks during the holiday season, she discussed with her children how they could help hungry kids or kids with other needs. This type of gentle education and encouragement will most likely result in a child in-tune to others and foster a desire to make a difference for that friend. What a fabulous lesson for all of us!
