The mission of the Backpack Food Program is to end hunger faced by children in Sodexo-partnered school districts by providing them with nonperishable foods in backpacks on weekends.

Program funding is primarily received from our employees who sponsor a child for $5.00 per month. To date, over 11,500 backpacks have been distributed to students and their families. The program is made possible through a partnership with the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts.
