We are an all volunteer non-profit providing food each weekend directly to children in need.

Our Model is very simple.  The more funding we receive, the more children we can help.

Each school we serve has established a network of volunteers.  Principals, Counselors, and Teachers work together to identify the children with the greatest need.  The school will place an order for a four to six week supply of food with Take Action INC.  TAI forwards that order to 

the nearest Grocery Outlet Store where the order is pulled and staged for pickup on the designated day.  Volunteers from the school pick up the food, take it for storage at the school and custom load each backpack for take home the last school day of the week.  The intent is to provide for younger siblings that may be in the home and to also insure the food packed meets and diet restrictions the children may have.

We believe we are packing hope one backpack at a time.  You can pack hope too!

Please consider becoming a monthly donor.  For as little as $15.00 per month we can 

provide a backpack full of food each weekend to a child in need.  Just click on the donate button for a one time donation or to set up monthly giving.  Thanks for caring
