Back Pack Buddies is a community program that offers nutritious, child-friendly, self-serve, nonperishable food to children on Friday's to eat over the weekend. The program is free and available to families that can benefit from the support. Making connections with the community to service students and families is an integral role of the school counselor and their comprehensive and developmental program. Back Pack Buddies is available around the country for counselors to implement in their schools. We are very fortunate to have various local organizations available to support students and families with this program.
