Shen's Bountiful BackPack Program – addressing weekend food insecurities for children at times when other resources are not available.
To make a donation online, go to https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/1415634
You have to indicate in the "Adopt-A-Program" text box that the funds are for Shen's Bountiful BackPack program so it can be directly credited to the district’s account.
The district wide Bountiful BackPack Program is a partnership with the Regional Food Bank of NENY. That is designed to meet the needs of hungry children at times when other resources are not available, especially on weekends. The program provides a backpack filled with food that is child-friendly, shelf-stable, and easily-consumed. Bags are packed each week by volunteers and discreetly distributed by school staff to participating children every Friday afternoon.
Each bag includes…
2 breakfast items (cereal, oatmeal packets, graham crackers, granola bars)
3 entrées (mac & cheese, PB & J, SpaghettiOs, tuna fish, soup)
2 juice boxes (100% juice)
Milk card for 1 gallon of milk (distributed every other week)
1 loaf of bread
Fresh fruits (apples, oranges, etc.)
Canned vegetables (distributed once a month)
2 snacks (cookies, popcorn, pudding, etc.)
