The Backpack Ministry delivers up to 50 bags of food each week to local students in need.  The food in their backpacks help bridge the gap over the weekend when some families struggle and they don’t have enough to eat.  By providing extra meals and snacks, these students are ready to learn on Monday - nourished and healthy.
