Welcome to Backpack Society
 where happy hearts and bright futures start with full bellies

At Backpack Society we're collecting food donations &
raising funds for students
who are struggling with food insecurity.
We partner with schools in Douglas County & Littleton Public School Districts to reach students in need.

We are a 100% community supported nonprofit based in Highlands Ranch.

Backpack Society Volunteers

Our Mission....

At Backpack Society, we are driven by a single goal; to remove

food insecurity as an obstacle for children

so they can grow, learn, and thrive. 

With the support of volunteers, the community & partnerships

with local schools, we provide food to kids on weekend & breaks,

when they don't have access to it at school.

“Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see”

-Mark Twain

We offer hope through a consistent bag of easy-to-prepare meals on the weekend so kids can focus on important things - like being a kid.

We also offer weekly groceries

to their entire family.


We are advocates, partners,

and volunteers dedicated to

changing the lives of students, their families, and school staff.

The most at-risk students for food insecurity are also the ones who are most affected by the achievement gap and poor academic outcomes that can have lifelong effects. By providing weekend food, we hope students will be well fed over the weekend and can come in Monday mornings, ready to learn.
