Mighty Active Pack Club
Providing Ross County school children with nutritious, easy-to-prepare food on weekends
Generously Sponsored By:
and Ross County Job and Family Services
The Mighty Active Pack (M.A.P.) Club is a program that provides shelf-stable food, discreetly packaged, for children in need at schools in Ross County over the weekends during the school year. These packs will contain bread, fresh produce and other items when available.
United Way of Ross County and The Ross County Hunger Coalition are partnering with Mid-Ohio Foodbank to help children get the nutritious and easy-to-prepare food they need for the weekend.
Teachers and staff at participating schools will refer students whom they believe may be chronically hungry. These students must meet financial eligibility standards.
Free and reduced priced lunch and breakfast programs create a regular source of food for school-age children, but such vital programs do not extend into Saturday and Sundays. The M.A.P. Club offers nutrient-dense food on weekends.
