Looking for a volunteer opportunity?  The Emergency Food shelf Network is working with neighboring churches to ensure young students have enough food to eat each weekend through the assembly of Weekend Kid Pack's.

 Kid Pack is a collaborative effort to fight local weekend hunger for children in our own backyards. Weekend snacks are assembled and delivered to schools on Fridays for children to bring home. Weekend Kid Packs are provided to 1400 local elementary students attending Robbinsdale Area Schools.

  • One in five area households with children are food insecure. Children in those households simply do not get enough to eat-- they have to cut the size of their meals, skip meals, or even go whole days without food at some point during the school year.

  • Hungry children face unnecessary barriers as they strive to become healthy, productive, and engaged members of society.
  • Hunger contributes to poor academic performance and disruptive behavior in the classroom. Missed meals also increase tardiness and visits to the school nurse.
