Weekend Backpack Foodbag Ministry

Weekend Backpack Food Bags

Currently, we have 15 Elementary School children and 10 High School children from food insufficient homes in need of Weekend Backpack Bags. We try to provide an extra bag of food items during holiday and seasonal school breaks when the children will not be able to obtain their breakfasts and lunches in school. As we are preparing to fill and deliver the bags to the students, we find our shelves in need of replenishment. If you are able, would you please consider donating items from the list below? As always, we appreciate and are grateful for any and all donations.

  • Pop Top Individual Serving Sized Entrees e.g. Chef Boyardee type bowls or 6-7 oz. can (any variety i.e. Lasagna, Ravioli, Spaghetti & Meat Balls)
  • Beans & Franks, Chili, Chicken & Dumplings etc. – 6-7oz cans
  • Smoked Beef/Chicken snack sticks e.g. Slim Jim small Individual sticks
  • Vienna Sausage
