Weekend backpack programs are at the forefront of assisting food insecure kids to be well-fed through the weekend. In these backpacks distributed on Friday afternoons, kids take home snacks and entrees they can prepare themselves. After state funding was cut for the program in Park City, the Christain Center of Park City (CCPC) took it on. EATS collaborated with CCPC for the 2018/2019 school year to add fruits to the backpack and improve the quality of food served in the backpacks.
The much needed supplemental food provided by our program is minimally processed, fresh, nutritionally dense, and important to the health and welfare of food insecure children.
