Missoula Food Bank & Community Center’s Kids EmPower Pack Program is a weekend nutrition program that helps kids stay healthy & nourished when school is not in session.
Every weekend, more than 500 packs of food are sent home with more than 1,000 students in Missoula County. Each pack contains a weekend’s worth of food filled with breakfast foods, kid-friendly snacks, dinner entrees, fresh fruit, milk, and more.
We depend on a large number of volunteers to help us build the Kids EmPower Packs. More than 60 volunteers are needed at each build, as we have to assemble more than 3,000 packs each time!
We are always looking for individuals or groups to volunteer at these builds. Dates for upcoming builds are listed below. You can sign up to volunteer at any build by filling out the form below. Contact Volunteer Assistant Ashlee Schleicher if you are interested in participating in our next build.
