The Most Essential School Supply

My brother, David, works for Communities in Schools in Wichita, Kansas. He and my nephews, food4kidsLeo and Levi, are featured in this public service announcement for a food program sponsored by the Kansas Food Bank. Food-4-Kids works with community schools to provides weekend food supplements to help keep kids engaged in school by addressing chronic hunger.

Food 4 Kids foodbags contain healthy, kid-friendly snacks that require no preparation such as:

  • Peanut Butter (12-ounce jar) and a sleeve of crackers
  • Beans and franks (pop-top can)
  • Beef Jerky (1 ounce)
  • Cereal (1-ounce bowl or box)
  • Fruit cups (peaches, applesauce, etc)
  • Raisins (snack-size boxes)
  • Pudding cups
  • Juice boxes (apple, orange, or other juice)
  • Milk (aseptic pack boxes that do not require refrigeration)
  • Cereal bars or granola bars
