The Backpack Program

Feeding our children

Get started
Get Started!!

  • It’s easy to get your own backpack program started in your local school. All it takes is a passionate teacher, parent, counselor, nurse, or community advocate. It only takes one leader to make a difference in the lives of so many children.

  • Hunger-the uneasy or painful sensation caused by want of food; craving appetite. Also the exhausted condition caused by want of food.

  • Tell me, what child could be expected to learn and do his best while suffering?

  • More than 1 in 5 kids suffer from hunger every day.

Build partnerships
Build partnerships

  • After starting your program, offer local businesses the chance to become involved. Get the community interested and use it for your benefit. Grab the attention of the public and touch their hearts so that they, too, may become involved in a life-changing event.

  • Once a school is adopted, find a nearby grocer that you can partner with

  • Many grocers are willing to give discounts and even donations towards the backpack program and can help majorly with food delivery


  • Fundraising is perhaps one of the most important steps. In order to supply children with food, you must be able to buy the food.

Typical food
Typical Food sponsors or make donations.

  • The backpack program supplies only healthy, nutritional food for students.

  • Foods include ready-to-eat sponsors or make items such as granola bars, peanut butter, tuna, crackers, Mac & cheese, cereal, juice boxes, etc.

  • These foods are easy to prepare and are ready to eat. In the unfortunate circumstance that a child must hide the food and prepare it themselves, it can be done.

Nourished learners
Nourished Learners sponsors or make donations.

  • Students who participate in the Backpack program show marked improvement in school attendance, test scores, behavior, and health

Resources is a blessing, especially to a hungry child!
