The primary mission of our program is to provide weekend meals to children in the South Jeff School District that are food insecure. The Backpack Program sends backpacks full of food home with students each weekend during the school year. If you would like to receive a backpack each week, please print out the Registration Form below and return it to your guidance office or school nurse.
