The Owsley County Food Back Pack program is changing the lives of families in need.
We help in a time of need whether it is for food, clothing, or other short term needs, while preserving Dignity and Pride.
Food is one of the things in life we all need in order for our minds and body to function in a way to make ones life better and to be able to learn in school, no child should be left behind because of hungry in America.
The Backpack Program sends filled bags home each weekend with seven easily prepared meals and two or three snacks with students. These children have been identified by teachers and school Resource Center personnel as having little or no food over the weekends, based on their hunger for breakfast at school on Monday at 7:30am.
55.49% of Owsley County’s children live at or below the national poverty level, according to the United State Economic Indicators. We see hunger here in Owsley County.
