Today it is estimated that 1 in 4 children in the US is living in food-insecure Back to school bradleyhouseholds. When children are regularly going without food the consequences can be dire. Without proper nutrition students start to display signs of adverse physical health, poor emotional well-being, and academic setbacks. 

Midwest Food Bank’s Hope Packs program provides at-risk children with supplemental weekend food. This Hope Packs logoallows children to arrive at school on Monday morning ready to learn. Volunteer agencies, churches, or community groups package shelf-stable food from Midwest Food Bank to give to students on Fridays.
