JACKSON LOCAL SCHOOLS BACKPACK FOOD PROGRAM

We are pleased to be able to offer The Backpack Food Program, in partnership with River Tree Jackson. This is a service for families in the Jackson Local School district with students in K-12. The goal of this program is to send home a variety of easy, ready-to-eat meals and snacks for your child to have over the weekend. There is no cost to our families to join this program. The bags will be delivered to your child’s school weekly and sent home with students on the last day of the week students are in school, usually Fridays.

This program is intended for families whose children are eligible for free/reduced meals. However, we understand some families may not be eligible for the free/reduced meal program, but are still in need of food. If you would like to opt-in, please fill out the google form linked below (one for each student). Please know, all information you share with us is kept in the strictest confidence.

To apply to be part of the Backpack Food Program, all you need to do is fill out the quick application form by clicking the link below: (one for each student). Please know, all information you share with us is kept in the strictest confidence.
