Snack in a Backpack

Snack in a Backpack is a community and volunteer supported program.

Snack in a backpackWhat we Do

Snack in a Backpack provides food for students who get their meals at school, and may have little or nothing to eat on the weekends. A bag is filled with non-perishable, healthy food items by volunteers and delivered to their designated schools for the children to take home over the weekend. This food may help feed other family members as well.

The Cost of Our Program

  • $2.50 will feed one child for a weekend.
  • $11.00 will feed one child every weekend for a month.
  • $110.00 will feed one child every weekend for the entire school year. Click here to learn how you can join the One Ten Club.

The cost of the food for our program is at least $45,000.00 for the current school year. $4,000 of that was for special food for children with allergies.

We brought the Blues to Blue Ridge and raised a ton for hungry kids.
