BackPack Program

Our Backpack Program provides food to children at high risk of missing meals when other resources are not available including weekends and school breaks.

The backpacks are filled with nutritional food that is child-friendly, non-perishable, and easily prepared. Those children at the highest level of food insecurity are identified by their schools and invited to participate. Backpacks prepared at our volunteer annex the day before, delivered the last day before a weekend or holiday and discreetly distributed to children.
