Filling Backpacks

Fat Boys donation

Today we got a donation from Angie and the crew at Fat Boys Barbecue! They delivered cereal which we will include in the Food for Kids Weekend Backpack Program.

Through this program, students who are in danger of not having meals to sustain them through the weekend are referred by educators to receive a food package. This package is discreetly placed in their backpack every weekend. The food package consists of entrees that require little or no preparation. Juice, a fruit serving, cereal, a milk serving and snack are also included.

Over 450 students from schools in Curry, Roosevelt, Guadalupe and De Baca counties participate in this program.

If you would like to help us with supplies or to volunteer with this program, give us a call at 763-6130.
