Imagine going to school and trying to focus on learning when you're hungry. This is a sad but true reality for more than 2 million kids in America every day. We are committed to helping kids East Pierce County to stay focused on learning by delivering Kid PowerPacks to the schools in our area where the needs are the greatest.
When a teacher or school counselor notices that a child is struggling in school, they dig deeper and in some cases , they find the cause is . . . hunger.
The alarming reality is that too many kids go home for the weekend or holidays with no promise of a nutritious meal.
Mountain View Community Center launched Kid PowerPacks to be a part of the solution for hungry and homeless families in our community.
Kid PowerPacks are filled with nutritious, easy to prepare foods that kids take home to sustain them on weekends and holidays. As a result, students come back to school focused and ready to learn. For us, filling multiple orders on a weekly basis is a major challenge but we are committed to making sure that children in our community have the proper nutrition so that they can stay on track.
We welcome your donation of any of the items pictured as we store up enough food to serve 220 plus students per week in the Puyallup and Fife School Districts during the school year.
We are distributing food to the schools during Covid-19, for 500 students.
