At the end of each week during the school year, children can receive a backpack full of nutritious food for the weekend.

Students at the following schools can contact their school office to find out how to receive food:

  • Bow Lake Elementary
  • Midway Elementary
  • Marvista Elementary
  • Parkside Elementary



 ​​Once each month, families and individuals are invited to shop our Full Service Room. This monthly service offers a generous variety of nutritious canned, dry, fresh, and frozen items for your whole family!
