We have started a Backpack Program at Lake Placid Elementary school. We supply fresh fruits for a weekly fruit bowl, giving any children access to a healthy snack throughout the day. We also provide enough food to carry 5 children through the weekend every Friday that school is in session. The program is in supplement to the existing Backpack program at the school which serves even more children. We accept food donations, we do not assume the children to cooking facilities but we do assume they have access to a microwave. Snacks and microwavable foods are included in the bags.
