Family Packs

HOPE.wrx assists families with food for the weekends during the school year. We provide the main ingredients for one dinner and one breakfast, as well as canned fruit and vegetables, and packaged snacks. Items such as spaghetti, popcorn, pudding, oatmeal, peanut butter, soup, tuna, rice, and beans are included. This program is known by several names and is available to the children attending schools in the North Kansas City School District. During the 2013-2014 school year, we are serving the following schools:*

  • Davidson Elementary
  • Topping Elementary
  • Meadowbrook Elementary
  • West Englewood Elementary¬†
  • Northgate Middle School
  • Crestview Elementary
  • Antioch Middle School
  • Maple Park Middle School

All families who participate in this program are referred to HOPE.wrx by the school. Dedicated volunteers clean back packs, load back packs with food, and deliver loaded back packs to those schools each week during the school year. During the 2013-2014 we fill 150 back packs per week, which represents 650 family members.

* HOPE.wrx serves these schools. Other schools may or may not have similar programs. Please see your school's counselor for information.
