How it works.

Non-perishable food is supplied to students and their families who may be struggling to find their next meal. As part of the academic curriculum, students pack the bags with balanced breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks to ensure the families have enough food for the weekend.

Backpack Giveback also provides our children in foster care with basic necessities, including toiletries, clothing, and pajamas. A backpack and self-care items of their own help the children to feel more secure in their foster homes and build self-confidence.
