Food Backpacks

We began by providing backpacks full of food to hungry children in 2009. Since then we have distributed over 1.5 million pounds of food! Each backpack has at least five pounds of nutritious snacks and child friendly foods. Students take the backpacks home each Friday and return them the following week for a refill.

Family Pantry

The Family Pantry is open to any person in need of food. We are proud to serve more than 100 families each week- in person and by home delivery. We offer food staples, dairy, meats, and produce on a rotating availability.

Care Cupboards

Many of our students feel uncomfortable carrying home a backpack of food. In response, we have established Care Cupboards in the schools. Students can discreetly access food to meet their nutritional needs at school or at home.
