We Take Care of Our Community
The West Lafayette Backpack Program operates solely on your donations and grants to keep this program going. The cost of one backpack full of food for a week is $6.00.
The West Lafayette Backpack Program has been blessed by generous donors, and time and again, our donors help to feed every student who qualifies for free and reduced lunch, per federal guidelines, in our school system. Additionally, through the generosity of our donors, our volunteers are able to pack additional nutritious snacks, such as apples, and we are also able to provide food for the whole family, including pasta and sauce, meal essentials, and pies for the holiday season.
How you can help
Please donate to the program to keep students in our community and their families fed through the school year and summer.
