Local partners are helping the HSSD keep Backpack Programs at our six schools, and the food pantry at our Welcome Center, stocked with protein-rich, tasty food items. Xpress Boats and Veranda Luxury Pontoons has again generously sponsored the Wild Game Snack Stick Program through Arkansas Hunters Feeding the Hungry for our school district. Through this program, more than 4,000 snack sticks have been provided,  made from deer meat harvested and processed in Arkansas. Efforts by staff members overseeing Backpack Programs at each of our schools and the Welcome Center will ensure that the snack sticks are distributed to families across Hot Springs. 

Backpack Program initiatives provide children in need of supplemental food sources with take-home backpacks of non-perishable food items each Friday. Some programs are stocked through partnerships with local churches and pantries, and one through the Arkansas Food Bank Backpack Program.  Nutritious non-perishable food options like the snack sticks are hard to come by in such large quantities, and are always a welcome addition to items available for families.

Thank you to Xpress Boats and Veranda Luxury Pontoons for sponsoring an effort that continues to allow us to help take care of our families. Thank you to the Arkansas Hunters Feeding the Hungry program for continuing the tireless fight of identifying sustainable, affordable food sources and connecting those to families in need.  The wonderful donation and service provided through this collaboration is greatly appreciated, and will be used in entirety by the HSSD to help keep our families healthy and fed throughout the school year.
