Feeding Area Children Together Happens With Your Help

Feeding Area Children Together is a 100% volunteer run organization. FACT Packs, FACT Pantry and FACT Break Boxes are paid for by individuals, organizations and business donations.  Please contact us if you would like to hear more about our organization, to host a donation drive, volunteer at a Pack Night, or have ideas on how we can partner together to help feed children in our community.  We love to talk to groups!  

Ways to Help
Weekly FACT Pack Distribution at Discovery, Madison & North Junior High
"Food Fairy Team"

Our Food Fairy Team places FACT Packs into backpacks while students are away from their classrooms on Fridays or the last day of school for the week.  We distribute three times the week before winter and mid-winter break.  A weekly commitment is not necessary but we request a set schedule.  

 

 

Fridays:       Place FACT Packs into backpacks at Madison or Discovery Elementary School

Hand-out FACT Packs to students at North Junior High from 8:00 -8:45

 

**All school volunteers must have a backgroud check on file with District 744.  It's free. Click here for the link.

Join our FACT Pack Event Crew

Our FACT Pack-ing Events are fun, educational, and take a lot of coordination.  Would you like to help prepare for a pack, as a pack leader during the pack or post-pack inventory?  Email Suzanne at info@stcloudfact.org 

 

Some of the opportunities:

Loading and Unloading - the ability to lift 20+ pounds, manage steps and uneven surfaces

Oversee the packing process during events - held either during the day or evening

Inventory - Counting inventory both before and after each pack event 

 

Host a Donation Drive

You can help us feed students by hosting a donation drive at your next meeting, event or as a way to raise awareness of childhood hunger here in central Minnesota.  We would love to help.  Please contact  us at info@stcloudfact.org
