Clarke Backpack Buddies Program

The Backpack Program is an effort to feed children who are in need of food over the weekend. Approximately 60% of the Elementary students are in the free or reduced lunch program.
We have found that there are students who receive most of their meals at school during the week, and would benefit from food being provided for the weekend.

The initial plan is to provide approximately $10 of food to each of the students to take home on Fridays, or the last school day of each week.  They would take this backpack home and return it empty the following Monday morning.
