Specific Information - Backpack Program

I included basic information for the backpack program in yesterday's overall update, but just in case folks are craving a little more detailed information regarding the Backpack Program and how it will  operate while schools are closed, I thought I'd share that.  Here goes:

BackPack Program Services Update: 
The distribution of BackPack Program food will start tomorrow! If you are a regular participant OR you signed up in the School Lunch Survey, please pick a site below and pick-up your bag between 11am-1pm. 

*** These are the same locations for the pick-up of the Gorham School Nutrition School Closure Lunch Program. You may collect lunch DAILY! 

*** We will provide families with 1 BackPack bag per child, each week. 

For safety purposes, please follow these procedures: 

1) When you arrive, please stay in your car and speak to the volunteers through your passenger side window and indicate you are picking up BackPack Program food. 

2) Volunteers will then place your bag at the end of the table. 

3) Once the volunteers return to their designated location (6 feet away), you may get out of your car to collect your food items. 

If you did not sign-up for BackPack Program services, it is not too late. Please email Heather Whitaker at You may receive services temporarily or for the remainder of the school year. 

Pick-up Dates:
Wednesday, March 18th
Friday, March 20th
Tuesday, March 24th
Thursday, March 26th
