If your child qualifies for free or reduced cost lunches at school….you may want to read the rest of this post:
For more than 15 years, the Feeding America BackPack Program has been discreetly providing nutritious, child-friendly, easy-to-prepare food to chronically hungry children in every day backpacks to take home over the weekends.
Upon request, the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank will supply and deliver pre-assembled food sacks and backpacks to Southside Youth Senter’s children at no cost. The pre-assembled food bags will contain approximately 10 different foods that require no preparation. Kids can just “open and eat.”
A signed Parent/Guardian BackPack Permission Letter will be required before a child can be enrolled in the BackPack Program.
What a wonderful program for children!
