Many children receive free or reduced meal while at school.  They rely on the food provided at school for their meals.  When they go home, there may be a shortage of food over the weekend.  We are working with local schools to help these children bridge the gap by providing a bag of readymade or easy to fix kid-friendly food.  

Items children may receive in their weekend packs are:

  • macaroni and cheese
  • soup (chicken noodle, etc.)
  • Ramen noodles
  • Pasta and sauce
  • Canned meals such as ravioli
  • instant oatmeal
  • peanut butter
  • canned fruit or fruit cups
  • canned vegetable
  • juice, juice boxes or hot cocoa mix
  • package hot dogs
  • granola bars

This program is always in need of support from our community.  Individuals or organizations interested in helping should contact us at 763-434-7685 or info@nacefoodshelf.org.
