Backpack Kids is a non-profit that’s goal is to provide food to children that have little to no food over weekends/school breaks so that they can just be children. We believe in involving our community as much as possible to keep awareness, and to strengthen our direct community as well as give our volunteers a sense of ownership. The children and families being helped are served with dignity, and grace and we believe in “paying it forward” … we have seen the cycle come full circle in our short life, and are so thankful for our communities support! Our children are our future!
