Aaron W. Smith is helping to ensure the health and livelihood of Boone County children by making a $250 donation to The Mid-Missouri Food Bank’s Buddy Pack Program.

Aaron Smith presented a $250 to The Mid-Missouri Food Bank to help fund their Buddy Pack Program in Boone County, Missouri. The Food Bank partners with elementary schools in the 32 counties it serves to provide Buddy Packs to school children. Buddy Packs are backpacks filled with kid-friendly, nutritious food for children to take home with them over the weekend and holiday breaks to supplement their meals when there is not enough to eat at home.

Around 55,000 students in the food bank’s service area qualify for free or reduced school meals. For many of these children, the breakfast and lunch they receive at school offer the only source of reliable nutrition; they are at risk of hunger over the weekends. The Buddy Pack Program aims to alleviate that risk.

Smith Law Firm, a Columbia, Missouri personal injury law firm, is making a dedicated effort to fulfill his social responsibility by addressing the needs of the community and those in surrounding areas.

“I am ecstatic to be able to make this donation to the Food Bank,” stated A.W. Smith. “The Buddy Pack Program is crucial to the survival and nutritional needs of the children it serves. Without the help and support of the community, the Food Bank would be unable to fund programs such as this,” he said, “It is our responsibility as a community to rally around these children to ensure that one of their most basic needs is met.”
