Weekend Sack Program

Weekend Sack Program

Established in 2008, the Weekend Sack Program provides students who receive free or reduced lunch with a sack containing 4 meals (2 entrees, 2 breakfasts, 1 veggie, 1 fruit and 3 snacks) to feed a child for the weekend. These sacks are handed out weekly during the school year.

Food is like gas and it feeds you so you can keep going. Without food, we get all tired and stuff. -Danny
