Send Hunger Packing WW-P (SHuP WW-P), a program of Mercer Street Friends, began in 2017 in the WW-P School District. Through this program, on Friday afternoons during the school year, weekend food is placed in the backpacks of food insecure children in grades K-6. It has been found that children who regularly do not get enough nutritious food frequently have behavioral, emotional and academic problems. This program has been found to make a difference.
