Harvest Hope Food Bank is proud to operate a BackPack Program for hungry children. This program operates during the school year and provides children who are at risk for hunger with healthy nutritious food to take home for the weekend, during school vacations, and on holidays.
* Harvest Hope Food Bank provided backpacks to over 440,000 children in our 20 counties in South Carolina. These backpacks are given out in schools with 50% or more of their students on free or reduced lunches qualify.
* While the cost of a backpack is very low, a child who leaves school with enough food for the weekend is truly priceless.
* One backpack cost $6.00 per child. To sponsor a child for the school year is $240.
We need your help to provide for over 500,000 children this school year.
