I’m sharing this question today from a reader who is involved with starting a Backpack Program for junior high aged kids in her area.
For anyone not familiar with the Backpack Program : every Friday during the school year, food is sent home via backpack . The goal is to provide food for the weekend to kids who rely on free school meals.
If your student came home and opened their backpack on Friday afternoon, what would be most helpful to find?
Total gross weight under about 5 pounds
Picky kid friendly
Easy prep since some families have no cooking facilities except possibly a microwave
Pretty cheap, like $5 retail
