Get ready, Tallahassee, registration for the 2023 A FULL SUMMER Snack Pack will be opening soon!
A FULL SUMMER Snack Pack will take place in the Godby High School cafeteria located at 1717 W. Tharpe Street. For two hours, we’ll pack
snacks for Second Harvest to deliver to agencies that serve food insecure children during the summer. Last year, A FULL SUMMER volunteers packed 5,000 snacks that were used at agencies such as Capital City Youth Services, Big Brother Big Sisters, Big Bend Homeless Coalition, and
Good News Ministries. So, let’s do it again!
Come back to this page in the coming weeks to register to pack snacks on June 3rd and feel free to donate anytime…like right now, if you feel called. Just click the button at the top of this page!
Volunteers may sign up individually or businesses, churches, community groups, family, and groups of friends can form a team and pack together! In addition to packing snacks, funds raised by A FULL SUMMER supporters sponsor eight Leon County School food pantries, underwrite the monitoring fees for the Hope 24/7 Food Locker located at Sabal Palm Elementary School, and furnish appliances to school pantries so that they may offer fresh or frozen meat, fruits, and vegetables to the children they serve. This year, with your help, we hope to sponsor a ninth school pantry at Astoria Park Elementary! Our fundraising goal this year is $32,095 to cover the snacks, 8 pantries, the Hope 24/7 monitoring fee, AND a 9th pantry at Astoria Park Elementary.
We ask each volunteer working at the event to donate a minimum of $50 to cover the cost of the snacks we pack. Teams of 10 cost $500. And we appreciate donations of any amount to cover all the ways we help food insecure children.
Thank YOU! Together we are doing something to help food insecure children in our community.
