The Back Pack Buddies Program provides food packs on Friday afternoons to students who are in extreme need situations and are likely to have inadequate food for the weekend.
School year 2018-19 is the 12th year for Back Pack Buddies in Transylvania County Schools. This year the program will be sponsored through the efforts of Manna Food Bank, Change the World Relief Organization, local churches, fire departments and many individuals.
During the 2017-18 school year, the program delivered an average of 250 packs per week. During the Summer of 2018, food packs were delivered to 182 children.
This program is endorsed by Superintendent Jeff McDaris.
We would appreciate your help this year.
