Weekend Backpack Program

May 22, 2017

 

Mishawaka Food Pantry and the Salvation Army are completing our first year of working together with the Weekend Backpack Program. 

 

The purpose of this program is to fill the void over the weekend when the students don't have the school lunches to depend on.

 

It is heartwarming to hear the parents say how grateful they are for this program, and that the students are anxious and excited to get this food.

 

This is the only program in the County that provides weekend food for middle school aged children. We also take food to two elementary schools in Mishawaka. 

 

Based on the feedback we received, it is our intent to continue and even expand the program, provided we can acquire the funding necessary to purchase the food.
