Thank you so much for your interest and help with providing nutritious food to 348 food insecure children in our community. Who, without your time and donation, may not have enough to eat throughout the weekend. Your generosity touches the lives of the individual children as well as their families.
When you sign up to pack, please select the Sunday of or before your packing event. In the comment section, please put the name of your group and actual date that you will be packing. This will ensure that the Weekend Backpack Program room is available and ready for you. Also, please consider giving a monetary donation to help cover the cost of the bags that your group is packing; we suggest about $5 per bag. We are able to purchase most of the food through the Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB) at a much lower cost than grocery stores can offer. Another option is to collect and donate food; things like cups of diced fruit, pudding cups, and small cups of peanut butter cannot be purchased through CAFB and are always appreciated!
It takes many individuals working together to make this program work. Thanks again for your help!
