One in four children is food insecure in Southern Nevada. These are the same children that are reliant on school meal programs - but what happens when school is out of session? Three Square’s BackPack for Kids program provides a lifeline for these hungry children by supplying a bag of shelf-stable, ready-to-eat meals. They currently provide approximately 6,500 backpacks on a weekly basis. In addition, their Meet Up and Eat Up program provides nutritious meals to children 18 year of age and younger in low income areas during the summer months. Three square will pack approximately 35,000 summer meals between Monday
and Friday each week during the summer. $7 provides a backpack for a child for a weekend $2 provides a child a healthy lunch for a child for the week (Monday-Friday) So for $9, you can be sure a child has a meal each day for 1 week.
