SP4KSA sounds like some great texting lingo and BTW it is. It stands for Snack Pak 4 Kids SA, a non-profit organization in San Antonio that provides weekend food supplements to serve the needs of chronically hungry children, addressing the relationship between food insecurity and learning.
It all began in Amarillo seven years ago when a couple began placing packs of food in the backpacks of children living in food-insecure households to help them meet the challenges of the weekend. Now Snack Pak has spread throughout Texas, meeting the needs of 1,400 children in San Antonio. A hundred percent of donations buy food for children. Classroom teachers are the first to notice that a child is showing signs of chronic hunger so SP4KSA helps children by partnering schools with churches and civic organizations.
Broadway Bank Care Corps supports SP4KSA as an important way of giving back to the community, including:
- peanut butter drives
- warehouse stocking and packing
- Regency Place Elementary sponsorship and distribution
- summer distribution to students’ homes
