Donors and volunteers are coming together again this year to make sure Dalhart children have something to eat over the weekend through the Snack Pak 4 Kids program. 

Snack Pak 4 Kids began 10 years ago in Amarillo, and Dalhart has been a part of the program for eight of those years. The program extends to 51 school districts, serving approximately 10,000 students who may not have enough to eat over the weekend if not for the program. 

“It’s a great big organization with a whole lot to offer,” Dalhart Independent School District Chief of Police and Snack Pak 4 Kids organizer Chiz Bell said.
