When students leave school for the weekend, the last thing they should have to worry about is how they are going to get their next meal. Thanks to Feed More’s BackPack program, weekends are worry free for our region’s kids!  The BackPack Program provides chronically hungry children with a BackPack filled with six nutritious, child-friendly, nonperishable meals to fill the gap some children face on weekends. In the year ahead, more than 80,000 BackPacks will reach 2,000 children weekly during the school year. - See more at:

Feed More’s BackPack program provides children who don’t have enough to eat with nutritious, easy-to-prepare food at times when other resources are not available.  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. Partnering with local schools, BackPacks are distributed every Friday so that children have meals for the weekend.

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.
