Perry Service Learning Program
The Pirate Power Pack Program provides a weekend supply of nutritious food for Perry Elementary and Middle School children, commonly from low-income families, to replace the school meals that children miss during their weekend or extended breaks from school. Each weekend food bag contains enough food for two breakfasts, two lunches, three dinners, and one snack.
Volunteers are needed each week to pack the Pirate Power Packs for 50+ participants. Students, community members, and families are invited to sign up as available, and make a difference by alleviating hunger in our own community.
While not required, volunteers are also encouraged to bring a donation to include in the Power Packs they are preparing. Some of the participants' favorite foods include granola bars, fresh fruit, single-serve peanut butter containers, and microwaveable popcorn.
