Backpack Buddies pick up
April 12 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Each week we provide weekend emergency food for 151 students across 8 Cumberland County Public Schools. The bags consist of two breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack items for Saturday and Sunday. The cases are picked up by the school social workers each week, then discreetly placed in the students backpacks on Fridays. Did you know 1 in every 5 kids go to bed hungry in our city? This is a practical way to show love to our students, teachers, and their families.
