Community Support Programs
The “We Care for Poverty” program is a backpack program. This program will be focusing on improving academic achievements by providing nutritional well-balance food to underprivileged children. Our aim is to provide a range of food, for low income school age children, whose families are unable to provide nutritional meals
on a regular basis.
The goal of this program is to help insure that these children will have something to eat when they go home on the weekend; as well, as school breaks. APFLEC will provide a year-long supply of nutritious food for children
when school lunch and breakfast is unavailable on weekends or school breaks. Each backpack will contains food for the weekend. All food is nonperishable and provided to children free of charge.
It is our hope these resources will support the health, behavior, and achievement of every student that participates. Priority will be given to the first 30 students returning the form to their teacher.
