The Connections Food Kit is intended to meet the nutritional needs of children during non-school hours, specifically on weekends. It targets children who receive reduced price breakfast or lunch at school, and currently serves the students of the Dansville Elementary School. While it seems unlikely that children in a county like Ingham would go to bed hungry on weekends, in reality, many children deal with hunger. Ultimately this program aims to keep students from going hungry on the weekends and remove barriers to academic success.

The contents of the Kits need to be kid-friendly, nutritious, easy to prepare, and individually portioned. Below is the list of what is included in each one of our Connections Weekend Food Kits:
The kits are put together, assembly-line style, by volunteer groups from the churches. They generally contain two breakfasts, two lunches, three dinners and two snacks. Food is placed in a 2 gallon ziplock bag then placed in a drawstring bag. Volunteers deliver the food to the school.
