SNC Sponsors Falls City BackPack Program

SNC, together with the Falls City Public Schools and the Lincoln Food Bank, is making a difference in the lives of our local children through the BackPack Program. This 2012-13 school year will be our 4th consecutive year for sponsoring the program which provides a backpack of food on a weekly basis to elementary children, selected by the school, for weekend nutrition throughout the school year.

The food purchased for the BackPack Program ensures a consistent supply of nutritious food each week of the school year for 36 children. Each backpack contains a minimum of five meals. The program sends around 180 meals home for a child and his/her family during the school year. We estimate the cost of the program to be $7,200 for the school year. In addition to that cost, students receive a bread, egg, and milk voucher once per month. By the end of this school year we will have sent home approximately 4,752 backpacks.

In cooperation with local organizations, volunteers and businesses, we can ensure that our elementary children and their families will receive food support for the weekends. Our community's children are our community's future.

If you would like more information about the Falls City BackPack Program or would like to make a donation, please contact Debbie Witt or Chuck Whitney at 402-245-4451.
