BackPack Program

Backpack logoThe BackPack Program provides children with healthy, easy-to-prepare food during weekends and school vacations, when the school meals they rely on are unavailable. Good Shepherd Food Bank partners with schools to discreetly provide children with bags filled with whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and protein. Since 2010, the BackPack Program has grown to reach over 1,000 children and their families. The BackPack Program is supported by our BackPack Hero Program, click here to support this program.
