How The Program Works

Participants aged 5 – 14 years are referred by schools aware of children with limited access to food in their homes.

The school submits a referral and parental permission form. Food items are packed by Food4Kids volunteers and delivered to schools each Friday morning. At the school, the food package is placed into the student’s own backpack helping to shield the child from any stigma associated with hunger or receiving food assistance. Each child in the home receives their own food package.

The cost per backpack is $10.00 or $400 to feed a child for an entire school year.  Programs are 100% funded by community donors and one-time grants. We are not in receipt of any core funding.
