The Central California Food Bank‘s school backpack program provides children in need a backpack on Fridays filled with food to last the weekend. These backpacks provide enough food for a family of four, including breakfast, lunch and dinner items. Children then return on Monday with the backpack empty and receive another backpack filled with food the following Friday.
The Kremen School faculty, staff and family members filled nearly 2,000 backpacks for the March distributions to 10 schools. The faculty and staff also included some inspirational messages for the children.
This community service served as a team-building activity with the goal of giving back to the community while continuing to build our own community at the Kremen School.
