Our mission is to make hunger-free weekends a
reality in Douglas County, but with schools closed
for an extended period, many children will go
without the meals they rely on at school.
Food insecurity is at a high, so we are shifting our focus to not only provide food for the student but food for their entire family as well. Boxes of groceries are provided, and families can sign up weekly for assistance.
END Weekend HUNGER!
Thousands of school kids in Douglas County, CO
go hungry every weekend. Help us provide them with
enough to eat when school is not in session.
April was an amazing month for Backpack Society!
We broke the 2000 mark for meals provided and we moved into our new space! We couldn't have done it without the support of our community! Thank you for helping us, help others!!
The mission of Backpack Society is to make hunger-free weekends in Douglas County, CO
