The Corunna Public Schools Backpack Food Program Committee is holding a spring food drive to support the district’s backpack program Monday, March 28 through Friday, April 1.
Currently, the program services approximately 70 students. Each bag is sent home on Thursday and contains breakfast, lunch, dinner, and two snacks to feed the student over the weekend. The program begins in October and runs through May. The volunteer program costs around $1,400 per month to provide food for our students currently served in the program, with an annual fee of approximately $11,000. All funds used to support this program were donated by staff or community members. Corunna representatives said that any financial or food donation would be greatly appreciated, and donations can be dropped off at any of the district’s five schools.
