What does Mac Pac do?
Canon-McMillan Horizon Foundation’s Mac Pac program was started to provide weekend meals for children in Canon McMillan School District’s elementary and intermediate schools who might otherwise go hungry.
Why do we do it?
There are millions of children in this country who are at risk of hunger. Hunger doesn’t just mean an empty stomach. Hunger affects behavior, academic achievement, and overall health. Children at risk for hunger are provided meals during the school at free or reduced costs, but through the Mac Pac program, we want to ensure that they don’t have to worry about where their next meal is coming from on the weekends.
