About

The Food For Kids Backpack Program was implemented through partnerships with 24 Title I elementary schools
(defined as schools with a population of greater than 50% of the children receiving free or reduced price federal school meals). One in four children are food insecure. Weekly, the Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula provides nutritious bags of food for over 1,286 children. Volunteers are needed to pack bags of food with kid friendly, yet nutritious food items for the children to take home on the weekends. Packing 100-200 bags of food will be benefical to the foodbank.
