CHILDREN

NEWBORN THROUGH high school

Full of Joy and Laughter

WACS provides our community’s children and students with nutrition to help them develop, learn and thrive. When children are nourished, they can focus on playing, reading and learning—not worrying about the source of thier next meal.

Babies and Toddlers

One of the greatest expenses parents encounter is providing nourishment and diapers to their little ones.   We bridge that gap by providing items of greatest need.

If you have an open package of diapers, please consider donating them to the food pantry instead of putting them in the trash.

Items Available: 

  • Diapers (Newborn – Size 6)
  • Baby Formula
  • Baby Food
  • Baby Wipes

Note: Items based on availability

School Snack Packs

Children in the School Snack Pack program receive nutritious, kid-friendly food each Friday or before holiday breaks during the school year. The snack pack program helps ensure that every child has food to eat over the weekend.

Snack packs are discreetly handed out each Friday afternoon during the school year. 

Enrollment:

Speak with your students’ school counselor or talk to a staff member at WACS. 

Birthday Bags

We offer birthday bags to help you celebrate a child’s upcoming birthday. Connect with a staff member during your Food Pantry intake process to learn more. 

Birthday bags are for children ages 212 and are distributed based on availability.
