Many hungry children rely on school resources such as free or reduced-priced school breakfast and lunch in Pennsylvania.

The BackPack Program is designed to meet the hunger needs of these children at times when school resources are not available, such as weekends and school vacations. Through this program, children can fill backpacks with nonperishable and vitamin fortified foods to take home on weekends. Through 38 partners the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank serves more than 5,700 children through the BackPack Program. There are currently 74 BackPack distribution sites in central PA.
