The Weekend Backpack Programs provide food packages to chronically hungry students from low-income and homeless households who are at risk of hunger over the weekend when free school meals are unavailable. Every Friday students are discretely given a bag of food containing easy to prepare foods which is then tucked into their backpacks and brought home. When children receive the nourishment they need, they can begin to experience success, academically, developmentally and socially. 100% of the proceeds will benefit Brookside and Lake Forest Park Elementary School Friday Food Pack Programs!
They accept donations of the following food items:
Chewy Granola Bars
4 oz. applesauce cups
Austin Toasty Peanut Butter crackers
Quaker single service instant oatmeal packets
Hershey’s 8 oz chocolate milk box 2% (or regular milk) – must be shelf stable
Swiss Miss hot chocolate packets
Canned tuna in water 6-7 ounces
