In 2014, 36,000 children were eligible for free and reduced meals in Pasco County Schools. These children receive breakfast and lunch every day they go to school. It is estimated that 20% of these children or nearly 7,000 are chronically hungry or food insecure and have little to no food to eat when they are not in school. Pasco Pack-A-Sack Food 4 Kids is designed for children who are not able to get sufficient food at home due to family struggles, neglect or other circumstances that prevent them from having regular access to food. Each sack contains 10-12 different food items designed to provide nutrition and calories for chronically hungry school children on weekends. Each sack of food costs approximately $4 -$5 and includes kid-friendly foods that require no preparation. Kids can just “open and eat”. Join our team while it raises awareness and funds for One Community Now. Out team's goal is $2000.
