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% volunteer & community supported nonprofit based in Highlands Ranch.
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”
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.
WHO WE ARE
We are advocates, partners,
and volunteers dedicated to
changing the lives of students, their families, and school staff.
100% Volunteer Organization
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!
