Food 4 Kids Items Needed

The Needs Council Food for Kids program addresses weekend hunger in children who qualify for free lunches during the school year.

The idea is to provide non refrigerated individual serving size nutritional snacks that young children can open and eat. No can opener, microwave or stove needed. Some of these children are left to fend for themselves on the weekend while parents work.

Below is a list of food items we need for the program:

  • Tuna kits
  • Fruit Cups
  • Beanie Wienies
  • Applesauce
  • Peanut Butter – sealed individual servings
  • Dried Fruit
  • Cheese packets
  • Nuts
  • 100% Juice boxes
  • Trail Mix
  • Pudding Cups
  • Beef jerky
  • Vienna sausages
  • Breakfast bars
  • Granola Bars
  • Protein Bars
  • Shelf Stable Milk (individual servings)
  • Crackers with cheese or peanut butter
