Schools provide some children with free breakfast and lunch, but what happens when the weekend rolls around?
The Weekend Backpack Program started with one child and one bag filled with a weekend’s worth of food.
Since then, the program has grown to encompass children across multiple school districts, including – most recently – Phelps.
Last week, Feed Our Rural Kids announced its expansion into the Phelps school district.
To meet the needs of that community, they’re partnering with the Weekend Backpack Program.
