Nutripacks Program Thanksgiving Turkey and Holiday Box Food Distribution

The holidays can be a stressful time, especially for food insecure families and for our elementary and middle school students who rely  on school resources for access to healthy foods.  This distribution can help make an impact and work towards our mission of fighting hunger and increasing access to healthy foods for children in need and their families.  

About the Nutripacks Program:  NutriPacks is a direct food distribution program for elementary and middle school students in Central Dauphin School District. The program provides food bags/backpacks for weekends and holidays, along with nutritional information, to children and their families who are food insecure.  The program is run by volunteers and is funded entirely through grants, foundation and community groups, and fundraisers. It is a project of the Panther Ram Foundation.
