Anyone who wonders if the Snack Pak 4 Kids program is working in Dumas need only to ask the children receiving the weekly deliveries. Since being welcomed into the school district in 2013, Dumas Snack Pak 4 Kids serves youngsters in all five elementary campuses who might not otherwise have food to eat on the weekends during the school year.

"It makes me happy for the food I get for my whole family to eat," stated one child when asked the question: "How does getting your Snack Pak make you feel?"

"Good cause someone supplies my brothers and me with some food so we won't starve," answered another child. "Happy that people care," stated another child.

To find out how you can get involved with the local Snack Pak 4 Kids program, please see the story in the July 31 edition of the News-Press.
