About the event
Our mission is to “Feed the Mind, Body & Spirit” of children in our own backyard. To ensure the nutritional needs of children are met when school is not in session, the program provides a small sack of food for youth to take home for the weekend. The food sack contains a two-day supply of nutritional, kid-friendly snacks and single-serving size food items that are easy for youth to prepare. Priority determination for the program is given to families who receive free or reduced-price lunches and are single parents, working parents, foster / adoptive parents, grandparent parents, or disabled parents.
Please pray about joining our team and supporting Operation Backpack. Food prices are increasing. Donations are down. Grant awards are uncertain. We need your help to continue this outreach. It takes a village!
Operation Backpack Food Sack Assemble Day on the 1st Thursday of each month during the school year (Sept-June) at 6:00 pm. Park and enter in the back of the building.
