Hunger does not take the summer off! Children and working families are even more at risk of food insecurity during the summer. Please consider holding a food drive within your organization - the CoreNet CNC committee will gladly collect and deliver any contributions to BackPack for Buddies.

*Please consider these guidelines for contributions:
We are proud to say that 40% of the food we supply to clients is fresh produce. For the other 60%, we focus on nutrient dense shelf-stable items rather than super processed foods high in fats and sodium. Here are some of our top recommended items:
Meats – Canned Chicken, Canned Tuna, Healthy Soups (not spam, vienna sausage, or potted meat)
Veggies – Green Beans, Carrots, Mixed Veggies with No Salt Added
Fruit – Peaches, pears and Fruit Cocktail all in their own 100% Juice (not syrup!)
Noodles – Ramen and Mac & Cheese
Breakfast – Instant Oatmeal, Instant Grits (prefer individual sized packets that don’t have crazy flavors)
Snacks – Raisins, Granola Bars, Dried Fruits, Pretzels (not chips or sugary snacks like cookies or rice krispies treats)
We love individual-sized, easy to open containers of food. They are great for the children in our BackPack Buddies program! But please avoid soft tops that are easily punctured during transportation by active children. Family size items are OK, but please avoid bulk or restaurant size. Really large containers are too big for seniors and families to use or pick up easily.
