All of our young students go home with snack-pack backpacks every other week. This backpack program has been sponsored by OFD Foods as well as the Corvallis High School Z Club.
Children in our classroom program attend class two mornings a week. While they are with us they eat a snack when they arrive and get lunch before going home in the afternoon. Many of our Family Tree Families struggle to provide nutritious dinners during the week. In addition to food offered through our food bank, we send snack-pack back packs home with the children.
The food makes a big difference for the family and our young students feel such a sense of pride because they feel like they are helping with dinner for their own families.
