MS Backpack Program

RCS Middle School Principal's Office

Good Afternoon RCS Middle School Parents & Guardians

RCS Middle School Food Pantry and Backpack Program is here to help!


Any student and family are able to access our non-perishable food pantry for assistance in supplementing their food supply.


You can get help on an as-needed basis or request participation in the weekly backpack program.


The backpack program operates weekly where your child brings a backpack home on Fridays filled with various non-perishable goods. Backpacks are then returned the following week to be refilled.


Our food pantry is available to anyone who needs it!


Please contact Kathy Durivage for more information, food requests, or to enroll in the backpack program.
