The BackPack Program


The BackPack Program meets the nutritional needs of children over weekends and school holidays when other food resources are not available. Children are provided child friendly, nutritious and easy to prepare food every Friday to help them and their families through the weekend and over holiday breaks. Typically, children receive a backpack filled with nutritious items (including produce) when leaving school as they venture home. Currently, we have one location serving 80 children at one school and the waitlist continues to grow. Without the BackPack Program, too often these children would have absolutely nothing to eat.
