School-year BackPacks for Kids


To provide nourishment on weekends for children at high risk of hunger, Tarrant Area Food Bank collaborates with elementary and middle schools to offer its BackPacks for Kids program. tafb


The schools identify the students and Tarrant Area Food Bank provides the backpacks and the food that children can easily access without the help of adults. At the end of the school week, children take home food for themselves and their school-aged siblings.

During the 2013-2014 school year, Tarrant Area Food Bank is providing weekend backpacks of kid-friendly food to 45 schools in seven counties (Tarrant, Erath, Hamilton, Hill, Johnson, Parker and Somervell).
