Each weekend Serving Our Kids feeds 3,500 kids in 70 schools who would otherwise go hungry. These kids do not currently receive weekend food bags from any backpack program or other governmental programs, but still face empty plates on the weekends. Southern Nevada’s children don’t understand complex federal eligibility guidelines or the fancy terminology used to designate their eligibility for food. They just know they are hungry.
SOK is looking for the following food items:
- Ravioli 7.5oz microwaveable open top can
- Vienna sausage 5oz can
- Fruit Juice
- Fruit Cup
- Fruit Snack
- Crackers – Individual Serve (No Peanut Butter Please)
- Cookies – Individual Serve Bag
- Granola Bar (No Peanuts Please)
- Pudding Snack
- Cup of Soup – Nissan or Maruchan
- Water – 16.9oz. bottles
Items can be dropped off at SOK or gathered by Sunrise OES #28 for a group donation. Please let WM Barbie know if you need to drop off items.
Besides food items, SOK is looking for notes of encouragement to place in the food bags for kids. Click on this link SOK Note to download the note template.
Sunrise #28 Order of the Eastern Star has volunteered to bag items this Tuesday, May 19th, 2020. Please contact the WM if you’re interested in volunteering or making a donation.
