Packs for Hunger Program

Epsilon Sigma Alpha (E.S.A.) Packs for Hunger, is a local weekend food project in the Carlsbad NM area.

 

It has been brought to our attention that large amounts of students go hungry every weekend. Zeta Nu, has decided that they would like to "MAKE A DIFFERENCES" in these children's lives. Each backpack is filled with individual non-perishable, pre-sealed food that ultimately will provide enough food to last the weekend for the child in need. Example; Backpacks (new or gentle used) consist of an assortment of Applesauce, Peanut Butter/Cheese Crackers, Ramen Noodles, Mac & Cheese, Vienna Sausage, Potted Meat, Chili, Beanie Weenies, Oatmeal, Granola... etc. Just to name a few of the items. An estimated cost for FOOD ONLY is $12.00 per pack and then there is the cost of the backpack.

 

With the assistance of each school Principal and staff, all candidates are screen to determine the ones with the most need. Every Friday morning Zeta Nu delivers the filled backpacks; the principal and/or staff then distributes the packs. In order for the student in need to maintain eligibility in the program each student must return the empty backpack undamaged to the school by the following Monday.

 

This program has been able to operate through the generosity of our community members, local businesses, News Paper, Radio Station and food drop off locations.
