Blessings in a Backpack
Does your student qualify for the free or reduced lunch program at school? IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO SIGN YOUR STUDENT UP!!!
If so, your student is eligible to participate in the Blessings in a Backpack program. For the past decade, this program has provided bags of food for weekend meals at no cost to hundreds of students in the Grand Ledge area. For students attending school in-person, a bag of nourishing, kid-friendly food will be placed discretely in their backpack or locker at the end of each week during the school year (except during school breaks). Examples of some of the food items distributed are: macaroni and cheese, canned vegetables, soup, oatmeal, granola bars, fruit cups, and beef ravioli.
If you would like your student to participate in the program, please fill out and sign the form. Have your student return it to Mrs. Hernandez, in the Student Services Office, or email it to email@example.com. After you send in the completed form, your student will be eligible for the program.
We do not include peanut products in the bags, but we cannot guarantee that the food we use has been processed in a peanut-free facility. It is your responsibility to check the bags when they come home for any ingredients or foods that your student should not consume.
If you register your student for the program, he/she will remain anonymous to the program volunteers. Your student will be identified with a coded alpha-number from a list provided by the school secretary to the Blessings in a Backpack coordinator.
