These wholesome snack bars taste great and are an easy way to fill kids’ hungry bellies while giving them the nutrition they need.
Along with the Odwalla bars, we donated several other food & non-food items that we had in surplus at our home.
With the couponing I do, I also have plenty of non-food items that I purchase for donations and since our local food pantry also accepts these things, we gathered them up as well. If someone doesn’t have to buy shampoo, soap or other toiletries, then they can have more money to purchase food for their families.
Here are our donations packed up and ready to be given to those in need.
When I arrived at our Community Food Pantry, I noticed how empty their shelves were.
After talking with Ruth, the coordinator, and Angela, her assistant, they said that the need keeps rising and also with summer coming, the need will be even greater with kids not getting school breakfasts and lunches. This small pantry helped over 129 families in April and are tracking to help even more this month. They receive no funding or government assistance, they only rely on the goodness and generosity of the community.

Ways YOU Can Help! -by Champions For Kids Simple Service Project
GATHER your friends, family and co-workers to fight hunger in the summer by hosting a food drive in your community. Nutritious snacks like Odwalla Kids Bars and Juice Boxes would be great to give! Consider giving out prizes to the person who donates the most food at you office or community organization!
LEARN about the needs of children in your community by asking a food pantry volunteer, school nurse, or social worker to talk with your group about their experiences.
GIVE the food items that you collect to a food bank in your community so that children and families will have enough to eat this summer.
SHARE your story with us at www.championsforkids.org/share so that we can celebrate your participation! How many people were involved, and how many items did you collect? Please let us know that you are ONE of Millions who helped reach our goal to mobilize 20 Million people by 2020 to become Champions For Kids!
Love To All! ~Amy
I have been married for 23 years to my awesome hubby, Todd and we have 4 equally awesome kids who keep me young! Our favorite thing to do together is travel. I enjoy gardening, yoga, walking and saving money! I am very active in my church and am currently serving the children, and I love volunteering at my kids’ schools doing whatever I can to help the teachers and staff.
