“There are children that take care of themselves.  Their parents are never home, either because they are working, looking for work, or just neglectful. I would see these children come to school on Monday mornings, dirty and starving, for both food and attention.   Here at school, we can try our best to give the kids the attention and food they need, but only when they are here.  When the food in your KidsPack program started, these children were looking forward to weekends, whereas before they dreaded Fridays because they knew there wasn’t going to be a good meal again until Monday.”  – School Secretary on the impact of KidsPack
