Many children rely on school cafeterias for their most nutritious meal of the day. In some cases, this may be the only meal a child receives. Each Friday afternoon during the school year, kids are discreetly and confidently provided a food filled backpack to ensure they have something to eat during the weekend.
Backpack food programs have been shown to increase attendance, decrease behavior problems, improve concentration, and improves student academic achievement. Please join this small community effort to bring the backpack program to Wiscasset school children.
