These 100 backpacks will be refilled every weekend throughout the remainder of the school year with nutritious meals. Each school distributes a pack of food to each participating child in their backpack on Friday afternoon. Backpacks are filled with enough food for six meals and two snacks. The typical backpack contains a variety of child-friendly, easy to prepare food usually including protein and fruit juices, and the cost is $3.50 for approximately 2 to 5 pounds of food.
