Agape Partners with St. Marys City Schools
Agape and St. Marys City Schools recognize the importance of ensuring that students have access to food at home. During the spring of 2019, St. Marys Middle School piloted the Weekend Power Pack Program. Agape provided shopping bags filled with shelf-stable food for students experiencing food insecurity to take home each weekend. These Weekend Power Packs were tucked into student lockers on Thursday evenings for students to take home on Friday.
Weekend Power Packs Available in All Buildings
The Weekend Power Pack Program was expanded to all four buildings for the 2019-2020 school year. Each building has a system for discretely distributing the Weekend Power Packs on Fridays. Students are usually referred for the program by staff members, but referrals can come from anyone- including students.
