ABOUT PAWTUCKET BACKPACKERS

Feeding Children in our Community

Did you know 1 in 5 Rhode Island children live in poverty?

We're here to help. 

The Backpackers program responds directly to student hunger by
​providing students throughout the district with a bag of food for the weekend
(--when school breakfasts and lunches are not available).

Here is a list of the most commonly needed donation items:

  • Fruit cups or pouches

  • Peanut butter or cheese crackers

  • Pop tarts (or other breakfast bar)

  • Instant oatmeal packets

  • Pudding cups

  • Granola bars

  • Cereal- individual serving boxes or cups

  • Fruit snacks/ fruit leathers

  • `Or any other shelf-stable, kid friendly foods!
