“This is an amazing program. We thank you so much for providing [it]" - Anonymous Parents, Berrien Springs


In the Berrien Springs school district, 67% of our students are eligible for free or reduced-price meals. Of these eligible students, 98% qualify for free breakfasts and lunches on school days. 

But these children need to eat on weekends, too. Often there isn’t enough food in their refrigerators or cupboards to feed them. So on non-school days, they go hungry.

That’s why we started Backpacks for Berrien. Because as a community we CAN stop their hunger. We just need your help to do it.

Please make a financial donation to Backpacks for Berrien. Your money will stay local. 100% of your gift will buy school supplies, backpacks and food for Berrien Springs Public Schools children who count on our help all school year. Every dollar will help them get ready for school, stay healthier and do better in their classes. You will not only help our community now but for years to come.
