Backpack Buddies Program started the Fall of 2019. This program provides students with a backpack to take home over the weekend with nutritious snacks. Any member of Downsville Central School district is eligible. (Forms are available in the Principals with Sandy Shaver)
Backpacks go home every Friday (which are requested to be returned that following Monday or Tuesday).
Each backpack contains: 2 Grains, 2 Fruits & Vegetables, 2 Dairy, 2 Proteins
Presently just about 60 students are served.
Backpack Buddies Program is funded through donations from clubs, organizations, churches, and with the help of a matching Grant from O’Connor Foundation.
