Backpack Feeding Program – Food for Kids
The Backpack Feeding Program, coordinated by EBCAP’s Newport Family and Child Opportunity Zone, provides a weekly backpack of food for enrolled children to eat on weekends when food can be scarce for families. Nearly 150 students per year are served at the Pell Elementary School in Newport. To make an online donation to the annual drive, now underway, click here.
