Kids Backpack Progam

Every Friday, non-perishable food is placed into backpacks for school children who have been identified as in-need.

 

Without the backpacks, these kids often go home on Friday afternoons and may not eat until they return to school on Monday. 

Bonney Lake Food Bank supplies the food and the bags are filled by volunteers on-site. Community-Based Transition Program Alums then prepare the backpacks every Wednesday and Thursday at Liberty Ridge Elementary for distribution.

 

Children served in the following schools:  Dieringer Heights Elementary School, Emerald Hills Elementary, Bonney Lake Elementary, Victor Falls Elementary, Liberty Ridge Elementary, Lakeridge Middle School, Mountain View Middle School, and Bonney Lake Senior High
