Backpack Buddies

Backpack Buddies

The Backpack Buddies pilot began in February 2018 and targeted the K only classrooms in the School District of NFDL. Each school year since, we’ve added a grade level – so, we’re now supporting children in grades K, 1st, and 2nd (up to 100 children). As resources are available, the hope is to continue to expand the program each year. Children enrolled in the program are provided with a nutritious bag of food for the weekends throughout the school year (on average, 6-8 items). The program managed by ~ 10 volunteers and supported with help from the NFDL community and beyond. If you’d like more information on the program, email backpackbuddies@nfdlschools.org.
