Kids BOOST Bags
Good nutrition during childhood is essential to the growth and development of children’s brains and bodies. If certain vitamins and minerals are missing at crucial times in their growing years, children will never reach their full potentials. That’s why the youngest guests at our Northwest, East, and South Knoxville FISH Hospitality Pantries receive child-sized BOOST bags. Each bag contains nutritious and delicious kid-friendly items, such as apples, grapes, strawberries, granola or fruit bars, vitamin-rich yogurt push-ups, apple juice, milk, string cheese, and raisins.
The BOOST program is unusual due to the quality of the foods kids receive.
To ensure that our young guests get the biggest possible boost of nutrition,
we only pack the bags with items made with healthy ingredients (no dyes,
artificial additives, or high fructose corn syrup). Keeping our BOOST bags filled
with typically more costly and delicious foods requires financial contributions from the community. We are thankful for all of our generous supporters and invite others to join this important effort. Together we can ensure that our youngest guests continue to get the nutritional boost needed to grow, learn, and thrive. •
