Somerville Backpack Program reduces food insecurity for Students in Somerville, MA 

Providing Healthy Meals to Kids

The Somerville Backpack Program provides bags of nutritious weekend food to students at the nine of eleven Somerville Public Schools every Friday. Each bag of food includes two breakfasts, two lunches, snacks and fresh fruit. 

The program supplements the school meals students rely on during the school week, but don't have access to during the weekend.
