Backpack Program

Lisbon Central School Backpack Program 

   This program was created by Wendy Jacobs and is a 100% donation based program. 

   Parents that have children that qualify for free or reduced meals in school rely on them so they are healthy and well nourished during the week.  But what happens when the kids go home for the weekend?  The Backpack Program is a way to provide these children the healthy food they need when they are not in school over weekends or vacations. 

   Starting in October, this program will be for families who are in need of food assistance, within the Lisbon Central School district.  Each family would receive one backpack of food like: fruit cups, applesauce, oatmeal, macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, granola bars, tuna, and more.  Each week the packs will contain different foods that will create a balanced diet throughout the weekend.  The backpacks will be sent home each Friday that school is in session.  In order to receive the backpacks you must be receiving either free or reduced meals for the current school year. 

   The LCS Backpack Program is funded completely by donations from the community.  If you would like to help with this program, through a donation it would be greatly appreciated.  Please make all donations payable to: LCS Backpack Program and mail them to Wendy Jacobs, 10026 State Highway 37, Ogdensburg, NY 13669, along with the form.  If you have any questions the school contact is Ms. Rachel Livingston.
