Currently, nearly 70% of Cadillac Area Public School’s elementary students qualify for our program!
Based on income guidelines determined by the state, food-insecure children are identified and given the opportunity to participate in the program. Once enrolled, each qualified child receives a food bag at the end of every week containing six kid-friendly meal options and six snacks. Presently, faithful volunteers pack approximately 450 bags of food to be sent home with students each Friday.
CABP is now operational at the following locations:
Forest View * Franklin * Kenwood * Lincoln * Mackinaw Trail Middle School * Career Tech Center * All Head Start Programs * and All Great Start Readiness Programs * Manton Elementary * Mesick Elementary
If you would like to serve in this ministry, we pack every Thursday unless otherwise noted to volunteers. Please meet at the Cooley Annex building on Granite Street at 9:00 am for set-up and 9:30 am for packing. Packing is complete no later than 10:15 am.
This ministry is 100% funded by donations and completely dependent upon God’s amazing grace!
