Numbers alone, however, don’t tell the story of hunger or the impact that Provision Packs makes in our community.
At Provision Packs our goal is to offer consistent access to food, with minimal interference to our schools while maintaining the greatest amount of anonymity for the child for the maximization of nutritional impact through our well-rounded packs of food.
Here are some testimonials of impact from our participating schools.
“The care and love coming in each pack of food is inspiring. Our students and families are forever changed in these donations because they feel cared for and connected to our school and our community. Our families recognize the value of this connection and we speak often about paying it forward. We are all blessed to be part of the circle of hope."
Lori Gregson - Ormond Beach Elementary
"Our students are so fortunate to have the Provision Packs program providing them with food week after week. The students are so grateful as many go home to empty pantries. This program has helped so many families in need and we are all so very thankful. Every Friday we see their faces light up when it's time to receive their bags. It really starts them on a positive note for their weekend with knowing that their basic need for food has been met."
Michelle Moore - Pathways Elementary
"I have seen the difference that Provision Packs has made in the children that receive them! The smile that they get, just seeing their "special delivery."
Dawn De Jesus - Ortona Elementary
“Provision Packs is a program that our school depends heavily on. A program that feeds OUR children. A program that our students look for weekly. There’s NO doubt in my mind that the food and snacks delivered to our students is nutritious, healthy and well balanced. Provision Packs provides so much to our community and we are forever grateful!”
Rebecca Railsback - Tomoka Elementary
