Food Bank's Back Pack Program

We believe that no child should ever go hungry.

Yet, many children who receive free school meals are left without the nutrition they need on weekends and holiday breaks when school is not in session. By providing children who are at risk of hunger with a bag of nutritious food each Friday throughout the school year, the BackPack Program attempts to reduce this gap and help children return to school on Monday ready to learn.

If you are interested in enrolling your child/student in the BackPack program please contact the BackPack Coordinator at your school. This could be a social worker, school counselor, teacher's aid or Family and Community Outreach Coordinator.
