What is it? We work with 4 schools in our local community to provide "Happy Sacs" which are bags of food that are given out on Fridays during the school year by the counselors to the homeless population in our local schools so that they might have something to eat for the weekend. For more information on how you can play a part contact Abigail Krieger, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each bag will have 10-12 items to last for the weekend. We are currently serving 40 elementary - high school students per week which means we have an ongoing need for about 1600 individual items a month! Below is a sample list of the items that we are looking for and will need on an ongoing basis. All items must be individually packed and not bulk.

granola bars applesauce nutri grain bars boxed chocolate milk Chef Boyardee mini cans fruit strips juice boxes chips
