The Weekend Backpack Program is designed to provide ready-to-eat or easily prepared food to send home on Fridays with eligible children and teens. Meals include: two pre-packed breakfast, four pre-packed lunch/dinner meals; and milk. Backpacks will be distributed on Fridays at summer meal sites. An application is required to receive the backpack. You can sign up at a meal site near you! Multiple children in one household only need one application. This is only for the weekend meal bag, summer lunches do not require an application. For more information, contact, Marion City Schools Nutrition Services at (740) 223-4423.
