Support the health and nutrition of kids.
Our Healthy KidsPack strives to alleviate childhood hunger by providing nutritionally balanced, kid-friendly foods to area students in grades K through 12 every Friday for them to eat during the weekend. Providing this resource ensures that all kids, regardless of income level, have access to well-balanced weekend nutrition during the school year.
- Balanced meal packs for kids to eat over the weekend.
- Delivered every Friday.
The impact of healthy, supported kids.
Our Healthy KidsPack Program reaches as many as 400 children each week in 31 schools throughout Madison, Jefferson and Gallatin Counties. There are multiple benefits for participating student’s well-being, including:
- Better relationships with school staff and/or other students.
- Feeling more secure.
- More interest and investment in school.
- Fewer behavioral problems due to increased nutritional health.
Because the educational environment improves as behavioral problems within a classroom community declines, many of these benefits could be affecting all the students in the classroom and not just the children participating in the program.
To sign up or learn more, talk to your school’s front office, or head to our Gallatin Valley Food Bank’s website to learn more about Healthy Kidspack and other childhood nutrition services. The KidsPack program is open to all students at participating elementary schools regardless of their family’s income.
