St. David’s Church and School has committed to support 100 students at three local schools each week during the 2021-2022 school year through the Backpack Buddies program. For those not familiar with this program, Backpack Buddies is designed to provide children experiencing food insecurity with nutritious, kid-friendly, pre-packed meals for the weekend—when they would not have access to a school’s free lunch and breakfast. We need your help restocking our shelves, packing bags and delivering food bins each week for students at Cedar Lane Elementary, Discovery Elementary and Broad High School. Please look over the opportunities below. Thanks in advance for your support!
Preferred Items for Backpack Buddies (leave on back shelves in Vestibule):
1. Fruit juice boxes
2. Individual serving cereals (1 oz or less)
3. Individual instant oatmeal cups or bags
4. Cereal bars and peanut butter crackers
5. Fruit snacks

Backpack Buddies Volunteer Opportunities
Please consider supporting the Backpack Buddies program by volunteering to help with packing or school deliveries. Packing bags of food takes place in the St. David's Annex each Sunday, begins at 12:30pm and usually takes less than an hour depending on the number or volunteers. Individuals, families and groups are welcome to help.
Food deliveries to each school occur during the week and take about an hour. It includes picking up bins of food bags from the church, dropping them off at the school and returning empty bins to the church. This usually takes about an hour for one school, ninety minutes if you choose to deliver to all three.
