BackPack Program

Backpack program

Over 300,000 children in our area receive 2 out of 3 meals at school. On the weekend, they often go without meals. Gleaners partners with local schools to distribute BackPacks filled with a variety of nutritious food for the weekend to children who rely on free school meals during the week.

Each BackPack contains:

  • shelf stable milk
  • protein
  • fruit
  • vegetable
  • whole grain
