    Many children in Alabama rely heavily on free and reduced breakfasts and lunches five days a week. However, the weekend creates a nutritional gap, leaving many children hungry when they return to school on Monday.  The BackPack/Secret Meals Program, though the West Alabama Food Bank, helps bridge the gap. Teachers discretely place the bags of food into the children’s backpacks, so they have nutritious meals throughout the weekend. 

    If you would like for your child to receive a weekly backpack meal, which consists of nutritious food for students to eat over the weekend, please contact one of the counselors.
