…Backpack food programs pick up where federally-funded free and reduced-price school lunch programs leave off. The concept is simple. Children whose families have a difficult time feeding them during the week probably have a difficult time feeding them on Saturdays and Sundays. The programs provide healthy, easy-to-prepare, non-perishable items to children who may not have enough, or any, food over the weekend.
