The Backpack program began in 2008, in partnership with teachers, parents and church groups. Children in need are confidentially identified by their teachers, and receive a returnable backpack filled with useful food such as ravioli, soup, fruit snacks, chips, cereal bars, cereal, popcorn, and other smacks, for the weekend. Currently 19 Madison County schools are involved in this program distributing approximately 2,400 backpacks monthly, and asking for more.
