Is your family struggling to put food on the table?
If so, Mac Pacs can help!
Mac Pacs is a program of the Canon-McMillan Horizon Foundation, which works to provide food on the weekend to all Canon-McMillan students K-12 who are in need.
There are millions of children in this country who are at risk of hunger. Hunger doesn’t just mean an empty stomach. Hunger affects behavior, academic achievement, and overall health. Children at risk for hunger are provided meals during the school week at free or reduced costs through the National School Lunch program, but through the Mac Pac program, we want to ensure that they don’t have to worry about where their next meal is coming from on the weekends. ~CM Horizon Foundation
If you would like your child(ren) to participate in the Mac Pacs program, please do ONE of the following:
Fill out the form found here and return it to school.
Scan the QR code found here with your smartphone's camera and fill out the form electronically.
Here’s how it works:
-Parents are able to opt-in if they feel they are in need. (The district no longer uses federal information to determine eligibility.)
-Food is sent home at the end of the week in a student's backpack. (This food has been purchased by monetary donations.)
-Only a select few staff members at each building charged with providing food to your child will know that you have opted your child into the program.
-Students have healthy food to eat throughout the weekend
