Backpack Buddy Program

We at Taft Elementary value the whole child and their needs.  We are very fortunate to provide the Backpack Buddy Program to our students.
Purpose:

  • Supplemental food provides healthy minds and bodies.
  • Children who rely on free or reduced lunches at school are often hungry on the weekends.
  • Our Backpack Buddy Program discreetly provides child-friendly, nonperishable, nutritious food for children in need in our school.  Backpacks filled with food are sent home on Friday and collected on Monday to be refilled.


Please call Mrs. Ware or Mrs. Ward for questions and/or referral information at 962-2262.
