Backpack Buddies Donation Collection

Help Us Help Our Community!

Backpack Buddies is a weekly food support program sponsored by Fountain Hill Elementary School with support from St. Paul’s Lutheran Church.  Each week, identified students pick up a backpack full of food for the weekend.  The goal is to send home healthy, easy meals that kids can manage on their own or that families can make together.  Example of items include breakfast foods (fruit cups, applesauce, oatmeal, cereal, breakfast and granola bars), pull-tab cans of soup, instant potatoes and rice, pasta, tuna fish, peanut butter and jelly, and snacks.  This year Fountain Hill is supporting 26 families weekly, more families than ever before.  The need for food is constant and always appreciated!

You can drop off donations at Guest Central. See Art Hutcheson for more information.
