Power Pack Program

IPM's Power Packs ensure students won't go hungry over the weekend when they are not receiving daily school lunches.

ADDRESSING FOOD INSECURITY

This program is designed for students who typically receive free or reduced-price lunches at school and may face food insecurity at home over the weekend.

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

"IPM's Power Packs provide families much-needed reprieve from the challenges of increasing food costs. This year we're also servicing several new immigrant families who are working hard to establish themselves in our community. We are grateful for the support in helping our children meet their most basic needs."

IMPACT

We collaborate with school nurses and counselors to provide about 1,500 calories of food including breakfast, lunch and snacks for the day in each Power Pack.  Students take Power Packs home from school on Friday afternoons.
