Delaware County Food Backpack Program

This program seeks to consolidate three existing weekend food backpack programs into one unified effort to feed Delaware City Schools and Buckeye Valley Schools students who qualify for the Free/Reduced Lunch Program. Bags will be provided on the last day of each school week with enough food to feed the family of each student enrolled in the program. Families will be able to elect to enroll in the program. The project has consistently served 380 families each week throughout both districts.

Contrary to popular belief, Delaware County is still a high need area! In fact, many families rely on Free and Reduced Lunches to feed their kids, and therefore they struggle on the weekends when school is not in session. This backpack program will address this weekend service gap.
Join in packing bags of food. Shifts are 1.5 hours long on Tuesdays, 5:30 – 7:00 pm. This opportunity is open to those age 16 and up. Only 4 volunteers per shift. Masks required and social distancing protocols will be followed.
