Provide a child with 8 meals, snacks, juice or milk, and fresh produce for a weekend! Each bag is strategically packed with kid-approved, dietician-reviewed meals, and snacks. The bag is black so other children cannot see what is inside and it is placed in the child's backpack while they are out of the classroom. Many kids themselves do not realize they are on the Backpack Program, let alone their classmates.
This Thanksgiving we are once again providing every child on our program with a delicious and healthy dinner for their family. Enjoying a meal with loved ones makes for the best kind of eating and our community’s children deserve the best. Your $25 donation will provide a child and their family with a nutritious Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings! “Take and Bake” Menu: a 12-pound turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cream of mushroom soup, cornbread mix, apple sauce, carrots, green beans, sweet potatoes, collards, and apples for a dessert dish. All items will be packed in a foil pan and come with recipes.
Be a produce promoter with this option! Each weekend the child will receive a fresh fruit and hearty vegetable in their weekly grocery bag. Produce will be paired with meal ideas and simple sides like individual servings of honey, peanut butter or ranch dressing.
