Badges for Backpacks 3rd Annual Food Drive

This weekend was the 3rd Annual Badges for Backpacks food drive to benefit the Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas' elderly and childhood food programs.

How the Backpack Program works:

On the last day of the school week, program enrolled children pick up a backpack filled with food for the weekend. The backpacks are filled with easy-to-prepare meals and snacks and are provided to children in a safe and discreet manner. These students take their backpacks home, knowing they will have food for the weekend. Items are included for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack for Saturday and Sunday.
