Backpack Program The program helps students who rely on school meals throughout the week and need that continued meal support over the weekendThrough this program, students are sent home with a small backpack of food on Friday. The hope is that this food will help “replace” the breakfast/lunch they usually get at school. The students return the backpack to school on the following Monday or Tuesday, so that the backpack can be refilled for the Friday at the end of that week. If you are interested in “sponsoring” a bag or helping with the needs of the kiddos in this community please contact Robynn Barth at robynn.barth@gmail.com. Read more about the program here (.pdf).
