Backpack Society

A nonprofit organization

Children in our community and their families are facing food insecurity now more than ever. 

We are partnered with local schools in Douglas County & Littleton School Districts to reach students ensuring they have enough food on weekends & school breaks.


Comment from our recipients:

-You guys always go above and beyond. You truly care about the people you serve. Don't ever change that.

-This was our first time and our expectations were exceeded! A lot more food than expected and the food that was given was better than quality than we normally buy.

-This service was a huge blessing for my family! We went through a tough spot and because of your generosity we were able to cut back on money spent on food. The extra money went to more pressing expenses. We appreciate all your hard work!

-Keep doing what you're doing... so happy with it all and happy you are there! This mother thanks you!

-You have been a blessing in a time we needed help. THANK YOU
