  Help? Calendar

Believing that children, if well nourished, are able to participate more fully in the learning environment, McBackpack provides supplemental food to Poudre School District students and their families who otherwise would not have enough food over the weekend.

Each week McBackpack volunteers pack food and deliver it to schools throughout the district.   At the schools, the food is then placed in backpacks and given to the children to take home.
