Join us Thursday, August 5 to support Second Harvest Food Bank Backpack Program

About Second Harvest Food Bank’s Backpack Program:

The Backpack Program provides a backpack full of nutritious, ready to eat, or easy to prepare foods on the weekends and holidays when school meals aren’t readily available. The organization packs the bags in the warehouse, via volunteers, and then distributes to school partners in food insecure communities.

Last year, SHFBM’s Backpack Program distributed 257,918 backpacks to 195 distribution sites (68 schools) in 21 counties. Bags cost $7.50 per backpack and generally, meals provided range from 3 to 5 per backpack. Full sized canned goods are used and a backpack generally is 8-9lb of food per backpack. This program does not use donated items – all items are purchased. For those interested in volunteering time, visit this link to register: Second Harvest Volunteer Sign Up To sponsor a child or donate, visit this link: Help End Hunger for Kids in the Metrolina Region.
