The Sac Pac program started in January 2012 and was created to care for children in Bradley County who are living in poverty by providing packs with kid-friendly, nutritious meals to students each weekend during the school year. The program currently provides over 400 packs of food weekly to local elementary schools. 

The Sac Pac Program will provide on-campus service-learning and community service volunteer opportunities for CSCC students, faculty, staff, and community citizens.
