Currently, there is a program in the Fox Chapel Area School District called Backpack for Hunger. With the economy the way it is today, some of our children may go home to a house with little food. These children have breakfast and lunch at school during the week and may need help with meals on the weekends. We would like to help solve this problem.
A letter will be sent home with each Hartwood student the first week of school asking families if they would like their child/children to participate in the program. There are no eligibility requirements. The program will service any Hartwood student. If you are interested in applying for the program, please complete this form.
Each family participating in this free program will receive a bag packed with child-friendly, single-serving snacks and easily prepared meals each week. A bag of weekend food items will be sent home with each participating child every Thursday or Friday.
If you are interested in knowing more about this program, have ideas, or would care to donate, please contact Janet Fazzini or Backpack for Hunger directly using the contact information below.
