"Did you know that more than 18 million kids across the country receive free or reduced lunch at school? What happens to those same kids over the weekend? Hunger doesn't take a few days off!

BackPack Pfriends provides healthy meals to PfISD elementary children in need over the weekends and school holidays. Every Friday afternoon during the school year students are given a backpack full of nutritious food, including proteins, cereals, milk, fruit and granola bars." PfISD Website

Backpack Pfriends is currently serving around 1500 kids in our school district. With your help they hope to expand that to 2500 kids very soon!! For more information about donating, visit their Facebook Page at:https://www.facebook.com/PvilleBackpackPfriends/timeline
