WHAT IS IT?
This program serves food-insecure students that live in the geographical area of the Shippensburg Area School District by providing a bag of 7 meals over the weekend during the academic year. It is open to any child 18 years old and under. The student does not need to attend a Shippensburg Area School District school.

HOW CAN I HELP?
The program is coordinated by SCRC and community volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, we need volunteers to organize food drives, pack food bags, and deliver food bags to schools and homes. Community organizations and businesses can also partner with Hound Packs. Please contact Jami, SCRC Coordinator at email@example.com to find out how you or your group can get involved.
This program is funded by community members through monetary or food donations. We partner with many local churches that support us financially or collect food items. We store food and pack the bags at the Shoebox Supply Warehouse every week.
