Valeska Hinton Early Childhood Education Center is very excited to again participate with the program that provides weekend snack packs for participating students at our school. The Snack Pack program is a collaboration between Valeska Hinton Early Childhood Education Center, Glen Oak Christian Church, Midwest Food Bank, Church Women United-Peoria, local neighborhood churches and individuals. This is free of charge, voluntary and requires no long term commitment from the family.The Snack Packs provide non-perishable food items that can be eaten over the weekend. The Snack Packs are given every Friday or the last day of the school week. The items in the Snack Pack are based on donations and items purchased, but could include food such as instant oatmeal, breakfast bars, hot chocolate, cheese crackers, fruit cups or pudding. The first Snack Pack will be distributed the first Friday in September.If interested in participating in this voluntary program for your child to receive a Snack Pack, please contact your child's teacher for a form to complete.
