Description

The Food for Kids Backpack Program at Lowry Elementary School began when they realized that there were many children going without meals on weekends and holidays due to very poor financial situations. The School has many generous donors of non-perishable food items and money. They have also written many grants for additional funds. The backpacks that go home with the children contain food items to create about 6 meals, with snacks, and total approximately $150 worth of food items per week. The backpacks are filled on Friday mornings, delivered to those students who have requested one and are brought back on Monday mornings. Each fall, when the School has lots of veggies from their Victory Garden, the fresh vegetables are also packed in the backpacks.
