IMAGINE A COMMUNITY
Where No Child Goes Hungry
Weekend Backpack Programs provide food packages to chronically hungry students from low-income and homeless households who are at risk of hunger over the weekend when free school meals are unavailable. Every Friday students are discretely given a bag of food containing easy-to-prepare foods which is then tucked into their backpacks and brought home. When children receive the nourishment they need, they can begin to experience success, academically, developmentally and socially.
