Children's Programs

Weekend Backpack Programs

One of FeedMore’s major initiatives, our weekend BackPack program provides chronically hungry children with nutritious, easy-to-prepare food at times when other resources are not available, such as weekends and school vacations. The concept is simple: children at risk of weekend hunger receive a bag of food that is child-friendly, nutritious, nonperishable and easy to eat.

By partnering with local schools, BackPacks are distributed every Friday and on the last day before a holiday. Each BackPack provides enough food that a child can easily assemble into six healthy meals. This helps ensure that children will have food over the weekend and return to school on Monday ready to learn.

NEED FOOD?

Since providing a new 5th grade student with a food bag every week since his initial request, his attendance and grades are improving, and his connection to our school is stronger (because we are helping him meet a basic need!).
