If your family is in need of weekend food we are here to help you.  

Find us on Facebook


The South Jeff Backpack Program provides a backpack of food to families with children in need of food for the weekend.  We will not be using backpacks right now due to COVID - Food will come in disposable bags.  The only requirements for a family to receive a backpack of food are:

 1. The parent or guardian of the student must apply for the program using the form below. (Everyone must reapply for the new school year even if you were       receiving it in the past).        
 2. The student must be registered in the South Jefferson School District.
 3. Bags are sent home on the school bus with the student or parents can pick up the backpack at the greeter’s desk of your student’s school.

We hope to have our first backpack delivery within the next two weeks.
