The Backpack program provides weekly bags of food for families in crises right here in North St. Paul. Hungry children are able to receive free and reduced price lunches at school during the week, but often go hungry over the weekend. Currently our food provides meals for 19 children every weekend of the school year. Because some of these children may not have access to kitchens, our food needs are quite specific.
To learn more, or to help us feed our neighbors, please contact Sue Williams or call 651-493-6934.
