Snac pac 4 Kids

Hunger doesn't take the weekend off and neither do we!!!!

Some about  the blessings . . .

Snac Pac 4 Kids not only helps to alleviate childhood hunger, but children served have been shown to have improved attendance, behavior, reading skills, and test scores in school.

Trudy & Hal Moench began working with Blessings In a Backpack as the Local Program Coordinators in Bandera, TX in 2015. They had been working with BIB in Boerne, TX for two years and decided they needed to get the program working where they lived, in Bandera, TX, where an estimated 700+ elementary school children in Alkek and Hill Country Elementary Schools qualify for the program.  Our leaders decided to allow our ministry to evolve into Snac Pac 4 Kids in 2020.

Trudy and Hal began by talking with several church pastors in the community. After talking with the Pastor, he presented the opportunity to the Bandera United Methodist Church Board and they offered free use of much needed air-conditioned storage facilities, volunteers and a place to fill the backpacks weekly.


We must raise money to purchase all the food provided to the families. There are no overhead or administrative costs associated with the program which costs an estimated $100 per child for a school year. As word got out about the program, contributors began to step forward, both individuals and companies. Initially starting with 50 children at Alkek, the program is now up to 100 at Alkek and 50 at Hill Country Elementary.


How can you help? We need your prayers. We need donations of 1-lb jars of peanut butter. We need your financial donations and we need your volunteer help.
