Summer is usually a care-free time for most of us, but for low-income families, summer is extra stressful on grocery budgets.  Children who usually are able to depend on free and reduced lunches provided at school are home instead.  Each year, the number of families we serve spike over these months.  ACBC provides “Summer Food Bags” to families with children to provide some extra, kid-friendly foods.  How can you help?

We are always looking for child-friendly food donations:

  • Cereal
  • Fruit Cups
  • Granola bars
  • Juice boxes
  • Peanut butter
  • Graham crackers
  • Kid-friendly snacks, fruit snacks, etc.

Financial donations are also wonderful – we can purchase a lot of this food cheaply through the food banks!

We are also always looking for groups of 6-20 volunteers to come and help us pack these bags between May and August!  If you are interested, call 763-422-0046.
