In an attempt to close the gap of summer time hunger, the Galveston County Food Bank has established the Kidz Pacz program. During the summer months, many children who depend on free or reduced meals at school often struggle to have enough food at home. Through our Children’s Nutritional Outreach program, Kidz Pacz, we offer ready to eat, kid-friendly meal packs to eligible children for 10 weeks during the summer months. Interested families can register at one of the over 20 sites in Galveston County. For each child that is eligible, they will receive a meal pack once a week for the duration of the program.
