Children deserve full plates


Make an impact in your community. Midwest Food Bank's Hope Packs program provides weekend food to children struggling with food insecurity.  Volunteer agencies, churches, or community groups package shelf-stable food from Midwest Food Bank to give to students on Fridays. This allows children to arrive at school on Monday morning ready to learn.   Pledge your support in our “Back to School” campaign.




Each Hope Pack comes with five core items:

• An individual warm meal (Tender Mercies, mac and cheese, ravioli)

• A breakfast meal  

• A fruit cup

• A granola bar

• A snack

A gift of $68 will help alleviate hunger for one child throughout the entire school year. 


Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. - Mark 10:14


Support the Back to School campaign with your entire family.  Midwest Food Bank has an Activity Book for your children to learn about food.
