SMART & KIND Food Program
Kind Sacks (the Kids in Need Distributors) is a nonprofit
organization that fights hunger in Montgomery County by providing food. We will
be rolling out the KIND program starting in September 2016. The first delivery
will be on September 15th. It will be only for the children who participated in
the program last year. Inside the bags,
there is a hygiene kit.
Smart Sacks is a program that gives a sack full of food
to elementary school children who would benefit from extra food for the weekend
when there is no school lunch or breakfast.
The first delivery will be on September 22nd.
Inside the bag, there is permission slip. The students
will have a week to turn in the permission slip. If the permission slip is not
turned in students will be removed from the program, which will allow other
students to participate in this program.
