Help us reach a goal of 100,000 decorated bags by October 25!

You can provide an extra touch of love to every child! Sack Suppers are a nutritious, ready-to-eat meal delivered right to a child’s classroom or summer site, ensuring children have access to the healthy food they need to thrive. Decorated Sack Supper bags provide kids with an extra touch of love — the secret ingredient to success!

You’re invited to celebrate with us!

Join us on Brown Bag Decorating Day for a Pop-Up Volunteer Project, Friday, October 25, from 10:00AM-4:00PM at one of our three Kids’ Food Basket locations to help us reach our goal of 100,000 decorated bags! We welcome friends, family or coworkers to this open-house style event to decorate bags, enjoy music, snacks and have fun.

Get Creative

Tap into your inner artist with markers, pens, pencils or crayons to decorate. If you need some inspiration, check out these amazing sack suppers decorated by others in our community!

What you will need!

Brown or white 6 or 8 lb. (or extra large – Size is 6” wide X 11-12” tall) paper sacks work best (can be purchased at Sam’s Club and GFS Stores in bulk). Please keep in mind that many Sack Suppers will be going to public schools and therefore cannot contain religious or political messages. Please refrain from using paint, glitter, feathers, or stickers.
