There are children who dread the weekend because there isn’t enough food at their house. In coordination with partner schools, Second Harvest’s BackPack Program provides easy-to-prepare food for children facing hunger on weekends and during school breaks.
A typical BackPack includes two cereals, two entrees, a snack, fruit juice, and shelf-stable milk. In FY23 Second Harvest’s BackPack program served more than 8,500 children experiencing hunger each week at 91 programs throughout Middle Tennessee.
