The mission of 31 Backpack is that No Child Should Go to Bed Hungry! Students who qualify for a reduced or no cost lunch receive breakfast, lunch, and a snack at school. What happens on weekends? They go hungry! Not anymore, not in the Copper Country. To combat childhood hunger, 31 Backpacks provides severely at-risk children a backpack filled with nutritious child-friendly foods for them to take home on the weekends, when they might otherwise go hungry. The food is packed and ready to hand out at the end of each week. This program is both free and confidential for the child and family.
