Backpack Snacks for Kids 2023

Weis Markets

The Need

Hundreds of Kids a week are going home without food in their home every weekend in Sussex County and that number is growing!

A Partial Solution

Sussex County Division of Social Services has designed a weekend meal program. They have found a way to identify these children and deliver snack packs in their back packs every Friday. We work with clients to underwrite this community service campaign to make sure that our kids do not go hungry on the weekends.    Our goal is to get more schools on board and ensure that our Kids don’t go hungry.
