The Salvation Army's Snack Pack Program aims to assist financially challenged students reduce the amount of hunger and food insecurity they experience over weekends and holidays when free/reduced lunch and school breakfast programs are unavailable. With the hope that by experiencing less hunger students are better prepared for school and experience fewer academic and behavioral problems.

The Snack Pack Program will do this through coordination with local schools to confidentially distribute backpacks, to registered students, filled with kid & family friend foods at the end of each school week.

The Snack Pack program is in need of the following items to help fill backpacks this fall:


  • Cereal
  • Canned Meals (ravioli, stew, spagetttiO's)
  • Soup
  • Boxed/Helper Meals
  • Canned Meats (tuna, chicken)
  • Mac ‘n Cheese
  • Peanut Butter & Jelly
  • Canned Fruit
  • Jello & Pudding Cups
  • Instant Oatmeal
  • Juice
  • Granola/Cereal Bars
  • Dried Fruit (raisins, craisins)
  • Pasta, Rice & Instant Potatoes

Monetary donations are also appreciated to purchase bulk items for the backpacks.

Monetary donations should be dropped off or sent to:
