BackPack Program
Coordinator: Deatrice Johnson

BackPack Program

More than 22 million children receive free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program and the National School Breakfast Program. For many of these children, school meals may be the only meals they eat. What happens when they go home over the weekend?

For more than 15 years, the Feeding America BackPack Program has been helping children get the nutritious and easy-to-prepare food  they need to get enough to eat on the weekends.

Weekly, at Grady-Madison AME Church, we assemble more than 50 bags of food to be distributed to young people at a local elementary school at the end of each week. With your financial help, we can provide even more food to more children in need.
