The Ephrata Power Packs Project is enrolling new families for the 2020-2021 school year. The Power Packs Project is designed to help families stretch their grocery money, prepare low-cost meals for their families over the weekend, and have their children well-fed and ready to learn.

Every Thursday, participating families receive a recipe and the ingredients to make the meal.  Additional items including cereal, peanut butter, soups, and fresh fruits and vegetables are distributed. Helpful information is also included in the weekly packs, including “Smart Shopping Tips,” “Clever Ways to Use Leftovers,” and “Food to Always Have On Hand.”

If you think your family would benefit from this program, please CLICK HERE to review the income eligibility information.

There is no cost to participate, but there are expectations:  Program participants are expected to pick up their food every Thursday between 4:30-6:00 PM at the Ephrata Church of the Brethren located at 201 Crescent Avenue in Ephrata.  Failure to do so will result in being removed from the program. 

If you are income-eligible and can to commit to the ongoing pick-up times and location, please complete this ONLINE QUESTIONNAIRE by Friday, October 23.  Someone will then be in contact with you.
