Coppell Cares Weekend Backpack Program
The goal of the Coppell Cares Weekend Backpack Program is to help eliminate food insecurity for the children who attend CISD schools. This program, under the Coppell Cares umbrella, provides nutritious breakfast, lunch and snack items to eligible CISD children (and siblings) to feed these children over the weekend during the school year when they are not receiving meals at school. Kids in Mission pack the weekend backpack items and then adult volunteers deliver bins of the bags to each participating CISD school who distribute the bag to each child to take home on Fridays. Items needed are listed below. Please leave on the metal shelf in Wesley Hall.
