Who qualifies?

The Weekend Snack Pack is distributing over 375 packs per week to students who qualify by income levels in their homes.  Many of their parents are both working; however, their salaries are at minimum wage or they work part-time.  These are the working poor in Mitchell who are struggling to make ends meet.  These snacks provide a little extra food for the weekend and benefit the entire family as they are often shared with siblings as well.



  • Anyone who qualifies for free or reduced lunches in their school also qualifies for the Weekend Snack Pack Program.


  • A form will come home with the student in the first weeks of school allowing parents to sign up for this.


  • At any time during the year parents can get a form from the school to begin receiving a Snack Pack.


  • Participating schools include: LB Williams, Longfellow, Gertie Belle Rogers, John Paul II, Mitchell Senior High school, and Second Chance High.


  • If your school would like to participate, please call Cindy at 605-770-5832
