The Food for Kids Backpack Program in Owasso is starting back up for this school year. Food for Kids is a program of the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma that provides a backpack filled with nutritious foods over the weekend for students identified by their teachers and counselors as food insecure.
The program is run on volunteer support and is currently in need of volunteers to pick up food from the food bank between the hours of 8am-3pm on Wednesdays and to deliver food to schools anytime during the school day on Thursdays. Regular volunteers can commit to one or more days a month. Contact Kim Densmore at firstname.lastname@example.org or 918-859-9334 if you are interested in volunteering. You can also learn more about this program on their WEBSITE.
