Backpack Program

summer backpack program

This summer, we are feeding hungry children in the Greater Hackettstown Area. We give kid-friendly foods to supplement food budgets strained by unemployment, underemployment, and disability. It costs approximately $140 to feed one child all summer, and every donaton will help sustain a hungry child.
