Power Pack Drive: Sat & Sun Oct 24 & 25th

The Power Pack Program (P3) is a Food for Others program that provides supplemental weekend food to a large number of students in Fairfax County public elementary schools. The students tend to be on the free and reduced meals program during the school week. Their access to food over the weekend is limited and they experience hunger between school meals. Food for Others’ P3 helps guarantee that food-insecure students will have food to eat on the weekends. 

P3 provides elementary school students with a pack of food they can bring home and eat over the weekend. Several children in our area have little or almost nothing to eat between their Friday lunch and Monday breakfast meals provided at school. The Power Pack (which contains 2 items for breakfast, 2 items for lunch, and 2 items for dinner, plus 2 snacks and 2 drinks) helps alleviate hunger for local children in need and enables them to focus on their school work.
