Power Packs

POWER PACKS - Food for Others

Selecting the Power Pack program was easy!  My kids Elementary School participates in this awesome program.  Our school has a great group of ladies that organize donations.  Then the classrooms take turns filling the “Power Packs” and send them off to elementary kids in our area who need food for the weekend.  The donations are then brought to Food for Others for distribution to the kids in need.

Great right?  I am excited to be collecting donations in exchange for a FREE Timeline Cover at my upcoming Pasta Theme Session on February 9th & 10th 2013.  Please be sure to bring 12 of the SAME item for donation.  The kids at our school will actually put together the Power Packs.

DO NOT USE food list:

  • Please try to avoid items with peanuts or peanut butter
  • Candy – VERY tempting, but try to stick with items that have some nutritional value
  • No perishable foods!
  • Pop Tarts – they can get too crumbly in the pack for the kids to eat
  • Potted Meat or Vienna Sausages –kids don’t eat them.
  • Family sized cans or boxes – too large for a child to eat alone and/or too heavy for them to carry home.
  • No glass containers, please!
  • Rather than bottled water select 100% fruit juice.
