Welcome to Backpack Society
where happy hearts and bright futures start with full bellies.
At Backpack Society we’re raising funds and collecting food donations to serve our neighbors who need it most.
We partner with local schools to reach students in need.
Please join us by supporting our efforts to make
a measurable difference in the lives of students
and their families in our community.
Backpack Society serves Highlands Ranch,
Lone Tree, Sedalia, and Littleton.
A bit of background...
Here at Backpack Society, we are driven by a single goal; to do our
part in removing food insecurity as an obstacle for children
so they can grow, learn, and thrive.
We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive
impact with all of our pursuits.

WHO WE ARE
We are advocates, partners,
and collaborators dedicated to
changing the lives of students.
WHAT WE DO
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.
WHY WE DO IT
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.
Some of our AMAZING volunteers!
