Thanks for choosing Booster Pak



We know you have many options on how to direct your time, attention and resources.  So, thank you for choosing Booster Pak.  Your gifts make our programs possible.

Your contribution to Booster Pak helps children in the West Des Moines School District reach their fullest potential. When you donate, you promote the health and growth of our community. Donate today and help us reach one more at risk student.



Financial Gifts

Because we have limited storage space and we can buy in bulk at greater discounts than what you can purchase in the retail market, a financial gift can be the best option.  It’s also easy for you.

    • Give using your credit card
    • Make check or money order payable to Booster Pak and mail to; Booster Pak, P.O. Box 71221 Clive, Iowa 50325.


In Kind Gifts

  • Canned premium white meat chicken
  • Canned tuna
  • Peanut Butter (1 lb. jars)
  • Macaroni & Cheese (boxes and cups)
  • Ramen Noodles (beef and chicken flavors)

Gifts of Time

Sometimes you just want to roll up your sleeves and get involved.  We have many opportunities for you.  You can volunteer from an hour a month, a couple hours week or even a few times a year.  There are lots of options.  View our current volunteer openings or contact us for more information.

A Note From The President

Here for You



Beginning November 16, 2020, our kids are back to continuous online learning and Booster Pak is here to make sure they come to school ready to learn. Our goal is that no student goes hungry.

Here are the ways we’re helping:

  • Booster Pak will be at the Grab and Go sites at Valley High School, Stilwell and Indian Hills on Fridays from 11 AM  – 1 PM to distribute packs to students registered in our program.
  • Booster Pak will be at the Valley High School Grab and Go site on Fridays from 5 PM  – 6 PM to distribute packs to students registered in our program.
  • Family Paks – If your family is in need of emergency assistance, we can arrange to have a family pak delivered to you or make arrangements for you to pick up additional food from one of the Grab and Go sites.  Contact Us to make arrangements.
