The St. Cloud Kiwanis AKTION Club is collecting food donations to help the FACT organization create FACT Break Boxes. FACT Packs are one gallon zipper bags that contain a child-friendly, non perishable breakfast, lunch and snack for each day school is not in session.
FACT Packs are provided to K-8 students free of charge at the schools we serve. Feeding Area Children Together (FACT) is a not a government program or funded by the United Way. FACT is a 100% volunteer run organization funded by individuals and local businesses. All money donated goes directly to purchasing food and the minimal supplies needed to help feed our students experiencing hunger. To learn more about FACT, or if your child is experiencing hunger on weekends and school breaks, visit www.stcloudfact.org. Currently, FACT serves the students at Discovery Elementary, Madison Elementary and North Junior High School in St. Cloud, MN. Additional schools will be added as funding allows.
