About Summer Backpack Program Packing Day

33c592f0dadc96b71b734dcad3d04130ab150a4e

Many children rely on the free breakfast and lunch provided at school for the majority of their nutrition. So when school is not in session, many of these children go hungry.

The Tupelo/Lee County Hunger Coalition wants to change that this summer.

The Summer Backpack Program will provide a box of food each week for children identified as the most food insecure in the Tupelo and Lee County school districts.

Join the Hunger Coalition at the BancorpSouth Arena on May 31 to help pack these boxes to keep our kids fed all summer long!
