Starfish Backpacks

The Starfish Backpack program provides food to children that have been identified at a school level as not having enough food to carry them through the weekend. The backpacks are packed with easy-to-prepare and nutritious items by volunteers at the food bank and delivered to the schools. The school staff distributes the backpacks to the children every Friday. For the 2020-2021 school year we are distributing 130 backpacks across 13 schools in our community.
