Each weekend hundreds of low-income students in Russellville School District take home a backpack filled with healthy meals and snacks. The students then return the backpacks to be refilled the following weekend.
The weekend backpack program ensures that students dealing with food insecurity will have something to eat when they are not in school. Many of the backpacks that are currently being used are in terrible shape and need to be replaced. By purchasing in bulk Food 4 Kids is able to buy backpacks at a reduced price. Please help us provide backpacks to the teachers who coordinate this program and the students they serve.
