Do you know about Desert Communities United Way?


This organization provides food to children in the high desert on weekends when free lunch is not available.

Through partnerships with local schools, businesses and other community groups, as well as individual donations directed to the program, the Kids Food Pack program provides homeless and very low-income school children with backpacks filled with nutritious foods each weekend, when school meals are not available.

The goal of the Kids Food Pack program is to ensure that food-insecure and hungry children have food during the weekends so they are able to engage in school and succeed!

 
Kids Food Pack is available at this time in the following school districts:

 

 
Lucerne Valley School District
Apple Valley Unified School District
Hesperia Unified School District
