Long Island Cares’ Pack It Up for Kids program helps alleviate children’s hunger when school is not in session – a critical spot of lack of resources for children.
Designed for the many children on Long Island who rely on free or reduced-price school meals – and for whom weekend food resources are very limited – Pack It Up for Kids provides nonperishable, easy-to-prepare, nutritious food for these children on weekends and during school vacation periods.
Each child discreetly receives a pack with enough food for six meals and two snacks. Items include individual containers of juice, fruits, vegetables, shelf-stable milk, tuna, soups and small microwaveable items.
