Weekend Backpack Program

The Weekend Backpack Program is a partnership between area churches, businesses and individuals to provide grade school aged children meals during over the weekend time periods of the year. 

During the school year backpacks are sent home on Friday with "child-friendly, easy-to-prepare" food items designed to keep those children from going hungry when school meal programs are not available. 

During the school districts summer recess, backpacks are made available at various remote locations around the Northland Pines School District.
