The Snack Pack 4 Kids program is seeing success in the Borger area.
The mission of the program is to end weekend hunger for children living in the Texas panhandle by providing a backpack filled with kid friendly snacks each Friday of the school year. Borger Independent School District is among 15 school districts in the area participating in the program, and has been doing so since late 2012.
