The Backpack Program provides food for children at risk of going hungry on the weekend. On Fridays, they are given a backpack full of food to take home for the weekend. Responsibilities for the program include providing a place to store food, packing the food in the backpacks, and dropping them off at the designated schools. Through parishioner donations, the group also hopes to augment what it puts in the backpacks with fresh fruit and hygiene items.
