For the 8th year, we are reaching out to neighbors, friends, and family in hopes of collecting donations that will assist AFAC’s Backpack Buddies program. Last summer we contributed over 2,000 jars of peanut butter and jelly to AFAC’s shelves, making it a staple for some of the 9,400 Arlington County school children whose families are “food insecure.” For those unfamiliar with the program, students enrolled in Backpack Buddies are given a ‘backpack” for the weekend full of nutritious foods when they don’t have access to the meals provided free of charge by their school. This way they are fully nourished seven days a week, and can head back to school each Monday ready to grow and learn!
Our goal this year is 2,300 jars of peanut butter and jelly and we are grateful for any contribution. Thank you for helping us help our peers.
