Back to school may mean something more than just class and recess to some students in Licking R-8 school district. It also means the security of knowing they will have meals not only at lunchtime in school, but over the weekend as well. Last year, Love Paks Nutrition was able to provide enough food for 63 children to have over the weekends during the school year. Thanks to a grant from Kyle Smith Agency LLC and its partner, MutualAid eXchange (“MAX”) Insurance, approximately one-third of the meals provided to children for the weekend will be taken care of this 2018-19 school year.

Love Paks Nutrition provides meals to children from pre-k on up each week in the Licking R-8 school district.

“Love Paks Nutrition is doing good by helping families who need it most in my home town of Licking,” said Kyle Smith. “I am pleased to partner with MAX Insurance and its community grant program to make this gift possible for the students.”
