The Golden Backpack Program

The Golden Backpack Program is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in 2008 and dedicated to providing food to underserved children in Golden, Colorado. We accomplish this by raising money to purchase food for distribution through our three programs: Weekend Sack Program, Summer Lunch Program, and Fresh Food Co-op. Our impact to date:
