Interfaith Emergency Services - Food 4 Kids Program

Food 4 Kids is a “backpack program” for hungry children in Marion County. Guidance counselors at the schools provide each child’s name to them, including the number of siblings in the household. Volunteers pack durable, rolling backpacks full of food for each household. The volunteer delivers the backpacks directly to the school, tagged for each child. The child takes the backpack home on Friday afternoon and returns them to school on Monday morning. Then, the volunteers pick up the backpacks at the school and the process starts all over again.

Backpacks include:

  • Canned meat
  • Canned pasta
  • Cereal
  • Crackers
  • Juice boxes
  • Macaroni & cheese
  • Non-candy snacks
  • Peanut butter and jelly
  • Pop tarts
  • Pudding & fruit cups
  • Shelf-stable milk
  • Snack bars
  • Soup

Interfaith Emergency Services - Food, Hygiene and Clothing Distribution

After completing the intake process, food is given to those in need. The amount is appropriate for their family and situation by the food pantry located in the warehouse. Interfaith uses the National Poverty Level as a guideline for those qualifying for assistance. This will determine their eligibility. Hygiene items, which are not covered by food stamps, are also given out. Those items are given to clients in the same manner as the food services. Clothes are given to those in need as well. Call for more information.
