Food Backpacks 4 Kids is a community effort to ensure that those who need food on the weekends have access to nutritious and easy-to-prepare food. The difference this makes is a more alert and eager-to-learn student Monday morning, a student who is less disruptive and who is able to focus on academics.
Easy-to-prepare food is collected at churches and distributed to backpacks and bags and sent home with children at school who may not have enough food to get through the weekend.
A child who is well fed because of the generosity of neighbors looks to those neighbors with a sense of appreciation through the years. This child cares about you because you have cared about her, because someone cares enough to help during his family’s tough time.
