Backpack Snacks Program

It becomes difficult for struggling families to provide their children with a full day’s worth of food. As a result, some of these children go days without three full meals. The Backpack Snack Program helps these families fill in the meal gaps when ends don’t meet. The program provides kid-friendly foods to local children. A single twenty-dollar donation can feed a child with backpack snacks for a month. The name, however, can be misleading. Most of theĀ children that use the Backpack Snack Program rely on the provided food to give them a meal that will last the entire day. It is hard for us to imagine that a couple of snacks could be a meal, much less the entire day’s nourishment. In Rowan County alone, we feed nearly 600 children every weekend, resulting in approximately 12,000 prepared meals per a month.
