Thank you to Rotarian Bill Clark and WCSD representative Matt Jones for presenting information on the BackPack program.
The purpose of the Warren County Backpack Program is to feed underprivileged kids in Warren County. They are currently serving 312 kids in all the attendance areas for 34 weeks each. The food packed must meet nutritional standards and a dietician makes that decision.
At the current time they are feeding about 30% of the eligible kids in the District. Eventually they would like to be able to feed all eligible kids in the k-5 grades.
There is also a “Kids in Need” program to help our kids during the school year that might need shoes, clothes, toiletries in order to attend school.
