BackPack Program

Thank you for your support in the the 2014-2015 BackPack Program with Wegmans and WIVB.

 Join Fill the Backpack


For $150 you can feed a child for a year.

Many children who rely on free and/or reduced price school meals may be left without an adequate supply of nutritious food on the weekends or when school is closed. The BackPack Program assists these students by providing easily prepared, nutritious food in take-home bags each Friday throughout the school year. Every backpack is filled with cereals, shelf stable milk, canned soups, fresh fruit, and a whole grain snack. Recipients are students chosen by teachers, counselors, and school staff based on individual circumstances.
