The Coal City Backpack Program, a not-for-profit organization, is pleased to offer a food Backpack Program to area students in need. The Backpack Program will drop off a specific number of bags of food at the school, which will then be distributed to children enrolled in the program one day a week during the school year. The bags will contain a variety of nutritious, non-perishable food items such as macaroni and cheese, fruit cups, granola bars, raisins, juice boxes, crackers, oatmeal, and applesauce. The bags may include products containing peanuts, wheat, milk, or other common food allergens and it is your responsibility to ensure the items are appropriate for your child to consume.
The Backpack Program is voluntary and is offered at no cost to participants. We request that you complete this online form at your earliest convenience if you are interested in the program so that your child can be included in the program.
