        Volunteers are needed to pack bags of food each Tuesday at 9 a.m. that can be easily opened by school-aged children (in the Lafayette Oxford community) for weekends and holiday weeks. Lovepacks works through school counselors to identify children in need. The organization operates through donations and food drives through the community.

        Each Lovepack contains easy to open, single-serve food such as: cereal, meat/pasta, soup, veggies, fruit, dessert, crackers, juice, shelf-stable milk. The school administrators and counselors discreetly slip the Lovepacks into the children’s backpack on Friday before they leave school.
