BackPack Weekend Food Program
Program Coordinator: Nancy Payne

Our Mission

The mission of the Backpak Weekend Food Program is to feed children during the weekend so they can come to school less hungry and ready to learn.


About the Program

The Backpack Weekend Food Program (BPWFP) provides children in need with 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 participant in the program must be given by the child's parent or guardian; also any allergies must be identified.  Volunteers organize juice boxes, milk, cereal, fruit cups, ramen noodles, canned vegetables, crackers, peanuts and raisins into orders for individual schools that will last a month.  All of the food is shelf stable and kid friendly with easy to open lids.

                                    "Hunger doesn't take the weekend off"
