Backpack Buddies Goal
To reduce the effects of childhood hunger by providing nutritious, easy-to-prepare food over the weekend to children residing in food-insecure homes in the Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose School District.
The wRight Choice Backpack Buddies program is available to provide supplemental meals and snacks for child(ren) over the weekends and extended school breaks, free of charge. Bags will be distributed on the last school day before the weekend. This is typically on Thursdays. Funding for this program is provided through grants from the United Way, and other generous donations. The program also partners with the Buffalo Food Shelf and Second Harvest Heartland to ensure the backpacks are filled each week.
Due to many families being serviced through the Backpack Buddies program, we will try our best to meet the needs of students with allergies. We encourage you to look through the item brought home weekly to ensure safety for your children. Although all food is held to FDA standards, the wRight Choice Backpack Buddies Program is not liable for any illness that occurs as a a result of consumption.
