Weekend Backpack Program
For far too many Imperial County children, school breakfasts and lunches are their main source of meals. Weekends can be scary when they are separated from the school cafeteria. In fact 1 in 3 Imperial County children are food insecure.
The Weekend Backpack Program provides a solution to weekend hunger. Teachers identify the most at-risk students who are then given food to fill their backpacks on Fridays when they leave school. We are currently raising funds to feed 1300 students every Friday during the 2021-2022 school year. You can help! Adopt a child in this program for $200 for the school year.
