BackPack Program

Second Harvest Backpack ProgramA program of Feeding America, the mission of the BackPack Program™ is to help alleviate child hunger by addressing the lack of food resources on weekends and holidays for children who are at-risk for hunger by providing backpacks stocked with groceries for families to prepare at home. On a weekly basis, Second Harvest works to distirbute over thousands of backpacks in Lorain, Erie, Huron and Crawford counties.

The BackPack Program™ is possible with support from Community Foundation of Lorain County, The Nordson Corporation Foundation, Stocker Foundation, Sodexo, Elyria City Schools and many other funders.
