“To all parents of elementary school students in the Peninsula School District:
Food Backpacks 4 Kids is a program offered for students whose families are in need of food assistance/support. Aimed specifically at students who qualify for free/reduced school lunches, we serve ALL families who need assistance with food now and then. There is no charge for participation in this program.
Each week backpacks are packed with food items with high nutritional value, taking into consideration food allergies and preferences. Each backpack contains enough food to supplement a family of four for the weekend. FB4K also offers free, new crock pots to each participating family, along with spices, recipes and food items to prepare the hot meals.
Occasionally Food Market vouchers are included in the backpack to purchase meat, milk and fresh produce items, at no cost to you.
Give us a try! FB4K program registration forms are available online, www.foodbackpacks4kids.org, at each school office or by contacting the
FB4K office at 253-857-7401.”
