Backpack Program

Greetings from South Lexington and South Lexington Developmental Center

With the beginning of the 2016-17 school year comes the responsibility of addressing high food insecurity that is a reality for many of our students at South Lexington. It is so hard to think about the population we serve (Preschool, Kindergarten and Developmentally Disabled Students) not having enough to eat. Fortunately, Lexington City Schools offers free breakfast, lunch and nutritious snacks through federal grants. This addresses the hunger Monday through Friday, but leaves many students without adequate access to food over the weekend.

This is where the BackPack Program comes into play. Each weekend, we provide a bag of kid friendly food like Canned Pasta, Raman Noodles, Pop Tarts, Instant Oatmeal, Peanut Butter Crackers, Fruit Cups, Chicken Noodle Soup and Pudding Cups tospaghettios students identified with high food insecurity.

Our BackPack Program is totally dependent on support from churches, civic groups, businesses and individuals in our community. We are grateful for the support we have received from FBC Women’s Mission Groups, Sunday School Classes and individual church members. We gratefully accept donations of food, cash or checks. All donations are tax deductible.

Please contact Julia Dunn School Counselor, South Lexington and South Lexington Developmental Center at 336-242-1245 or jdunn@lexcs.org if you wish to help the most vulnerable children in our Community.
