More than just a health issue, childhood hunger hurts students academically, socially, and behaviorally. The long-term impact to society is even greater when these children fail to grow out of poverty because they are unable to reach their full potential due in part to chronic hunger.
Our mission is to provide these children with only the most nutritious food as well as fresh fruit each week. Therefore, most of the food we provide is purchased at wholesale prices or below. That’s why we’ve created the Backpack-a-Roo™ Club.
As a A Backpack-a-Roo™ Club member, you will receive a window cling for your vehicle, home, or business. Display it proudly so everyone will know that you’re a Backpack program supporter and that you care about our community’s children and their readiness to learn!
