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.
With their help, we are able to share the costs to purchase backpacks for the program and fill them with essential school supplies. Families can register a maximum of 2 children per family.
2021 Backpack Program
Our 2021 Back to School program has concluded. 322 backpacks were distributed to children and youth in our community. Thank you to our supporters for another successful year!
