Snack in a Pack
Snack in a Pack (SIAP) provides supplemental food packs over weekends and holiday breaks for students who may otherwise go hungry while not in school. Snack in a Pack is managed by the Waynesville AmeriCorps VISTA program.
SIAP provides weekly meals for approximately 325 students within the Waynesville R-VI School District. SIAP is a 100% donation-driven program that relies on the generosity of its partners, donors, and the multitude of community volunteers to continue its mission to feed hungry children and improve educational success.
The cost to support each student receiving a pack is approximately $200 for the school year. With the current number of student recipients, the total cost to feed all of them is approximately $65,000 each year. Snack in a Pack is always in need of donations (monetary or in-kind) and the help of volunteers interested in supporting the program.
Schools served by the program include:
Williams Early Childhood Center
