Thanks to support from our community and from The Simmons Foundation, our Kids' Healthy Snacks Program is thriving. Not only have we been able to purchase more snacks and drinks to share, but per requests from our partners, we now have art supplies and masks avaialble as well! Our community partner after-school programs shop for free and share snacks and supplies with their kids to help them fully engage in homework and physical activity as well as use the food as an opportunity to strengthen their relationship with their kids. 

"My participation in the Kids' Healthy Snacks Program provides me an opportunity to open up my office and show the children that my office is a safe space for them and their families. I feel as though this has opened up opportunities for the families in the community to interact with me." - Johanna Rozzi, Portland Community Policing
