Each day many students rely on healthy breakfast and lunch meals served at school to provide the daily nutrition needed to learn. For many, these meals may be the most nutritious they have throughout the week. What happens when they go home over the weekend?
The School Backpack program provides students with nutritious foods which are easy for students to open and prepare. These backpacks go home with students on Friday and are returned Monday. Numerous community organizations and volunteers support this program through donations of food, money and time.
To get involved with the Backpack program contact Nancy Gibson at 270-831-5000
