All students enrolled in Isle of Wight County Schools are given an opportunity to apply for free and reduced price meals. For many of these children, school meals may be the only meals they eat. What happens when they go home over the weekend?
The Pay It Forward Backpack Program works to decrease the child hunger in Isle of Wight County, VA by providing nutritious and delicious meals for children in need on the weekends. Each week representatives from our organization work in conjunction with the Isle of Wight County Food Services to pack 56 bags with nutritious and easy-to-prepare food for children at Windsor Elementary with a need. These bags are distributed every Friday for students to take home for the weekend. Together with your help we can make a difference and expand our backpack program to include more schools in Isle of Wight County, VA and provide more food to more children in need.
No amount is too small. Thank you in advance for your kind donation!
