Backpack Buddies is a supplemental weekend feeding program. Children who qualify for free/reduced lunches receive a "backpack" of food at the school each Friday. Children are provided with a healthy breakfast, lunch and a snack each weekend during the school year, including extending breaks. Children will receive food based on four rotating menus that are offered throughout the year.
