While attending classes at Howard, students have the opportunity to get breakfast and lunch, but what happens when school’s out and there’s no food at home?
The Howard Snack Pak 4 Kids (SP4K) program aims to help end weekend hunger for food-insecure students by providing a backpack filled with nutritional snacks each Friday of the school year. The bags are delivered to the teachers each week and are then put into the students’ backpacks (for those students who are enrolled in the SP4K program). The Howard PTO helps fund this program and every year we ask for volunteers to help put our plan into action.
Thank you for being an advocate for our students in need of nutrition during the weekends and school holidays!
