The Starfish Backpack program provides food to children that have been identified at a school level as not having enough food to carry them through the weekend. The backpacks are packed with easy-to-prepare and nutritious items by volunteers at the food bank and delivered to the schools. The school staff distributes the backpacks to the children every Friday. For the 2020-2021 school year we are distributing 130 backpacks across 13 schools in our community.

Our Rotary Club will provide 6 members interested in delivering bags to their partner schools, it would be wonderful to have you volunteer to help the Food bank out! 

There is a Non-Instructional Day on February 5th, so we will be delivering the backpacks the morning of Thursday February 4th. The volunteer drivers would arrive at the food bank between 7:30-8:30 and each driver would drop off to 1-3 schools on a route.
