The Reston, VA based non-profit has been a Meridian Community Outreach partner for a number of years and primarily works in local apartment communities to connect residents to local services and often has children drop in after school for programs and help with their homework.

Snack packs provide something for the kids to eat after a long day of school, and help them to get energy and be able to focus on the program they're participating in or their homework.

Each snack pack includes a combination of fruit (fruit cup or raisins), a snack (granola bars, crackers or chips), a drink (juice box or water bottle), and a prize, such as a pencil, pen, or stickers.
