Why get involved?

Shelf with various graphic food products

When children are in school, many benefit from the breakfast and lunch program. But when school is not in session, over weekends and long breaks, there are children in our community without access to nutritious meals. 

The Panther Foundation started the Weekend Pack program in 2013 to help keep children fed and make sure hunger does not impede their learning. Since then, we have distributed more than 26,000 Weekend Packs to students across the district. The packs are are especially important when a crisis, like COVID-19, strikes.

When children are fed, they can focus on learning and growing. Our goal is to raise the funds necessary to meet the need now and in the future.
