Hi-Five Kids Pack Program

HI-Five Kids Pack ProgramOur Hi-Five Kids Pack Program provides nutritious meals to needy children who do not have access to school cafeterias during the weekend. 

We started the Hi-Five program when educators came to us looking for a solution to providing weekend food for the neediest of their students. Students were coming to school sick and unable to learn because they had not eaten since their school lunch the previous Friday.

Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida partners with elementary schools that have a significant percentage of student participation in free and reduced lunch programs. Last fiscal year, 42,917 food packs were provided to needy children at 27 elementary schools.

The food packs contain a variety of kid-friendly items such as cereal, shelf-stable milk and juice, fruit cups and more.  These food packs of shelf stable food are all assembled at our Food Rescue Center by our dedicated volunteers. We are always looking for opportunities to expand this program to more children, in more schools.

Since 2006, more than 221,000 packs have been distributed – the equivalent of 661,677 meals. The Hi-Five Kids Pack Program has been made possible by funding from Darden Restaurants, Winter Park Health Foundation, Health Central, Junior League of Greater Orlando, Target, Kohl’s Department Stores, and Food Lion, Inc., as well as many other generous partners.
