Every child deserves a fresh start to the school year. The Brantford Food Bank School Backpack Program is offered to Food Bank clients who are unable to afford new school supplies for their children. We are extremely grateful for the generosity and support of organizations, community groups, and local agencies.
Backpacks contain essential items that will set up each child for success and we need your help to fill each bag. We are accepting anything on the shopping list as well as financial donations and gift cards to Walmart and Staples. Money and gift card donations help ensure that all the backpacks have everything they need and no child is left out. We are also able to purchase specialty supplies for older students.
