Activity Description

SERVE at Home is a way for your family to spread kindness and help our community on your own, anytime, anywhere! We want to keep Houston volunteering all week long! Let's make snack packs for SEARCH homeless to distribute to its clients.

For this activity, you will work with your family at home to assemble snack bags for SEARCH to hand out to their clients.  SEARCH helps people living on the streets face an elevated risk of displacement and unsafe conditions. Your family can help make a difference for them.

You will need to provide the supplies for this activity. You can complete this activity on your own anytime during the month.

Activity Requirements

  • This activity is great for all ages. 
  • You will choose 3 or more easy-open protein items from this list, and place them in Ziploc bags to create snack bags. You can also write encouraging notes to go in each pack.
  • Our program is designed to be a family experience. We want parents and caregivers to work alongside their child(ren) for all our Family Volunteering activities.

Activity Directions

  • Bumble Bee Snacks on the Run (tuna, chicken salad, ham, etc.)
  • Vienna sausages
  • GoGo Squeeze fruit pouches
  • Pudding packs
  • Planters mixed snack pouches/trail mix
  • Fruit cups or applesauce cups
  • Peanut butter or cheese cracker packs
  • Dried fruit crisps packets
  • Raisin snack boxes
  • Granola bars (crunchier varieties rather than chewy, please!)
  • Jif to Go/Nutella to Go snacks
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Non-chocolate protein bars (chocolate melts!)

Place the items in a large ziplock bag or plastic container. You can also make cards to place in the kits with messages to brighten the day for SEARCH's clients who are experiencing homelessness. Please don’t include dates, contact information, last names, religious references, or seasonal information such as references to holidays.

You can purchase supplies for and make as many snack packs as your family is able to donate. We recommend making at least 6 snack packs, but any amount you can put together is appreciated.
