Thank You for Supporting the Backpacks for Kids Program!

Thank you to all our donors to the Backpacks for Kids program

Food for People sends a huge THANK YOU to the Times-Standard, the Eureka & Old Town Rotary Clubs, Soroptimist of Humboldt Bay, Lost Coast Commuincations, North Coast News, the Lost Coast Rotaract Club, and all the community members and groups who helped to ensure the Backpacks for Kids program will be ready to serve Eureka School Children in need this year.

Backpacks for Kids is a hugely successful program providing weekend nourishment for Humboldt County’s neediest children. Each child receives a backpack full of nutritional food to take home with them on the weekends. Our schools work hard to provide good nourishing meals for these children during the school week, but this is the only program that provides for them on the weekends. No child learns well on an empty stomach. It not only affects how they learn, it affects how they develop and how they act with others.
This small investment into the future of these children will have the opportunity to pay dividends beyond our imagination.
