Backpack Food Program
The centerpiece of Alvord Cares is a weekend Backpack Food Program. The concept is simple: Children at risk of weekend hunger receive a bag of food that is student-friendly, nutritious, nonperishable and easy to eat. The weekend Backpack Food Program allows students to receive a bag of food every Friday.
