Help Assemble KidPacks!

The KidPack Program is a free, optional, supplemental weekend food program for Kindergarten to Fifth Grade Students in the White Bear Area Schools. Enrolled Students will receive a bag of single-serve food items (including 2 breakfast, 4 lunches, and a handful of snack items) on the last day of the school week to bring home for the weekend. We are excited to invite volunteers to join us on Thursdays at Community of Grace Lutheran Church (4000 Linden St. WBL) to pack KidPacks for our weekly distributions. You can view the available volunteers slots and SIGN UP HERE!

The Food Shelf receives food donations from food drives, local grocery stores, and supporters in our community. Help us sort and check these items for freshness on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. See the available volunteer slots and SIGN UP HERE!
