With the good support and generous contributions from the community, the Backpack Buddies Program for the 2017-18 school year at Rock Port is going well. The Backpack Buddies Program sends food home for the weekend with children who qualify for free lunches at school. The cost to provide food for these children is $150 per child per school year. All contributions big and small have been very much appreciated. Each weekend of the school year, Backpack Buddies give the gift of nutritious food to children who need it. Remember hunger does not take the weekend off.
