The mission of the BackPack Program is to help alleviate child hunger in America by providing children at risk of food insecurity with nutritious and easy to prepare food at times when other resources are not available, such as weekends. This is a national program in which we participate via the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York and Feeding America. A backpack full of child-friendly, shelf stable, easily consumed food is discreetly distributed to participating children. Volunteers are needed on Thursdays from 12:30-1:15 to simply pick up food from Gowana Middle School to Arongen.
We are looking for someone to chair this program for the 2017-2018 school year. To volunteer, email ArongenPTA@gmail.org.
