Power Packs’ unique approach to providing a nutritious weekend meals and food preparation skills aims to teach families how to better stretch their food dollars. Power Packs provide low cost recipes and ingredients for our participants to cook a meal under $5. Our research-based methodology addresses the many factors that influence a child's decision making: personal, interpersonal, and environmental. In partnership with school districts in Lancaster County Power Packs is approved to work within the schools, so we can collaborate with school liaisons to help meet kids and their families where they need us—and where we can help build a school-wide culture that works to decrease food insecurity.
