The Inn of the Good Shepherd’s snack packs are back.
Each pack provides 21 nutritious snacks for one child for one week and includes crackers, yogurt, cheese strings, cereal and other healthy items.
Last year the ‘After the Bell’ snack packs reached 3,200 children.
They are available now at any of the 14 locations in Sarnia-Lambton visited by the Inn’s Mobile Market.
The goal is to ensure every child gets the energy needed to play and learn this summer, the agency said in a release.
“Many children in our communities are in a breakfast and lunch program, and no longer have access to the nutritious food they so desperately need.”
The program is sponsored by Noelle’s Gift and supported by Food Banks Canada.
