WHAT IS BACKPACKS4KIDS?
Nutritious meals are vital to a child's overall well-being. FUMC Joshua is proud to partner with Tarrant Area Food Bank (TAFB) and its Food for Kids program to provide Joshua ISD students with healthy meals and snacks every weekend during the school year.
For many children and teens, the only meals they eat each day are provided at school. TAFB's Backpacks4Kids program provides children with backpacks full of nutritious food that they can take home and won't go hungry over the weekend.
Backpacks4Kids in Joshua ISD relies solely on the generous donations and contributions from individuals and corporations through one-time and recurring gifts.
