Food Backpack for Kids
Together, No Child Will Go Hungry
Without our Sponsors & Partners, we can't feed hungry children.
“Food Backpack for Kids” fills the hunger gap on weekends during the school year. Approximately 100 children are at risk of weekend hunger in the Siuslaw and Mapleton School Districts. Our partnership with our schools protects children’s dignity while filling their empty stomachs on weekends.
"One of my early concerns was the sustainability of the program. When programs of support go away, or when interest fades over time, the impact on families can feel like a significant loss. I am thrilled to report that my concerns have not come to fruition."
Mike Harklerode Principal, Siuslaw Elementary
"Prior to the food 'backpack' program, Monday mornings and Friday afternoons were the times of unusual behavior for some children in our schools. If you or your organization is looking to make a charitable donation to support the FB4K program, I can guarantee that your gift will be used in the best possible way. All of the labor and overhead for the program is donated or a volunteer effort. Every single dollar you donate will go directly into food for needy children."
Andy Grzeskowiak Superintendent, Siuslaw School District
