BACKPACKS OF HOPE provides weekend meals for children and their families every week of the school year. (approximately 40 weeks of the year). We believe in feeding both the children and their parents. In the 2015-16 school year we served 100 families weekly from local schools in the Everett, Snohomish and Edmonds School District. We hope to add an additional 50 families for the 2016-17 school year.
Backpacks are filled on Wednesday mornings and Thursday evenings. If you want to get involved in packing , leading a food drive at a local grocery store, or donating to this program, complete the volunteer form. There is a Food Bin in the lobby of Gold Creek Church where you can drop off donations Monday-Friday between 8:30 AM-4:00 PM.
