Wheat Ridge Feed the Future Backpack Program

Wheat Ridge Feed the Future Back Pack Program

Various non-profit agencies and individuals have come together to provide an on-going  fund which supports the collection and dissemination of food items, each weekend, to students in eight Title I (free/reduced lunch eligible) elementary schools. The program is meant to provide children who are on the School Free and Reduced Lunch program some extra meals to see them through the week-end when they otherwise would go hungry. The program provides two breakfast and two lunch items, two snacks, fruit and vegetables.
