The Summer Weekender Backpack Program (in partnership with Helping Harvest Food Bank) provides participating children with a bag of nourishing yet easy-to-prepare food to sustain them through the weekend. Each Weekender bag contains assorted, shelf-stable meal options such as cereal, pasta, skillet dinners, soup, juice or shelf-stable milk options, and kid-friendly snacks. The Weekender bag does not require refrigeration.
