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 Kidz Pacz program we offer ready to eat, kid-friendly meal packs to eligible children for 10 weeks during the summer months.
