Carepack For Kids

In October of 2018, we were attending a prayer summit south of Abilene and Dr. Young, the superintendent for Abilene ISD came to share prayer concerns for the schools. One issue he shared was weekend food insecurity for kids in this area and the need for a better solution to take care of this rather large need. When Love & Care heard there was a food need for children, we simply responded that we wanted to help. After weeks of prayer and understanding how this should work, we birthed Carepack for Kids. In the first school year we served 360 packs every Friday to Abilene ISD. Over time 10 more school Districts around the Abilene area joined on and now five years later in 2023-2024 we are serving over 1,700 packs every Friday.

By January of 2019 we were set up to serve the 1st school that badly needed help. With the collaborative help of many CarePack for Kids began, and by the end of 2019 the program was serving 10 school districts with about 1200 weekend CarePacks every week.

We follow the blueprint that Snack Pak 4 Kids shared with us and are a part of a buying co-op that helps to get the very best for deserving kids at incredibly low cost.

We currently serve all of Abilene ISD and 10 additional School Districts around Abilene. We send out over 55,000 CarePacks every school year, and it is exciting to see the growth of this program.
