Many children who receive free or reduced-price school meals are left without adequate nutrition on weekends and holiday breaks. CFA’s Weekend Snack Pack Program is designed to fill this gap by providing healthy, kid-friendly, and easy to prepare snack foods to children at risk of weekend hunger.
On Fridays, a sealed plastic bag of nutritious snacks is discretely placed into the backpacks of children who participate in the free and reduced-price school lunch program.
We are hosting our first community-wide MLK Day of Service Event on Monday, January 21, 2019. We’re inviting local businesses, community-based and service organizations, schools, and individuals to support the MLK Day of Service to assemble weekend snack packs for local children in need.

Legislation signed in 1983 marked the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. a federal holiday. In 1994, Congress designated the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with leading this effort. Each year, on the third Monday in January, MLK Day of Service is observed as a “day on, not a day off.” MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a “Beloved Community.”
The Weekend Snack Pack Program (WSPP) is made possible by generous and dedicated individuals and groups. This is an important program that “fills the gap” for students on the free/reduced lunch program and are at risk for hunger at home.
1. With a minimum order of 500 packs, CFA will deliver the product and organize a packing event at the CFA Saddle Brook site or at a Bergen County location of your choice. CFA will bring the finished packs to our warehouse and deliver them to one of the WSPP schools. Each pack costs $4.50.
2. You can collect monetary donations and purchase the items from CFA. This is an efficient method because CFA can purchase the items in bulk at a discount. Also, it eliminates the need to “fill in”.
