The Mission

Together we are changing lives, one meal at a time.

The Mission 

The BackPack Weekend Food Program, Inc. provides children in need with a plastic bag of nonperishable, individually-portioned, nutritionally-balanced food to take home in their backpacks on the weekend when school meals are not available. Those students most likely to be hungry on the weekend are identified by school counselors, social workers, teachers, school nurses, and principals. Permission to participate in the program must be given by the child’s parent or guardian and any allergies are identified.
