Backpack Programs

backpack-program-hungernetimage2016

We have partnered with agencies across northeast North Carolina to provide hungry children with much needed, nutritious food items on the weekend during the school year.  Many children participate in free and reduced food programs through school systems, however, these programs only operate Monday-Friday.  Backpack programs are able to provide two breakfasts and two lunches to help children return to school on Monday morning ready to learn.

Backpacks are filled with nutritious, kid-friendly food that is distributed to children to take home on the weekend. This program is designed to ensure children that might go without have access to healthy food over the weekend.
