Weekends Without Hunger

FULL BACKPACKS EQUAL

HAPPY TUMMIES!

Participants aged 4 – 17 years are referred by schools aware of students with limited access to food in their homes.

​The school submits a referral and parental permission form. Food items are packed by Food4Kids volunteers and delivered to schools each Friday morning.

 

At the school, the food package is placed into the student’s own backpack helping to shield the child from any stigma associated with hunger or receiving food assistance. Each child in the home receives their own food package.

The cost per backpack is $10.00 or $400 to feed a child for an entire school year. 

Programs are 100% funded by community donors and one-time grants. We are not in receipt of any core funding.

there was little or no food at home

"She would come to the office a few times a week, complaining of a sore stomach. I would ask what she had to eat and she was steadfast she had food at home. After several visits, I simply looked at her and she shared the truth, she was coming to school without food and there was little or no food at home. When I told her about Food4Kids, her eyes lit up. This will be one experience in my education career I will never forget."
