Backpack food

BACKPACK PROGRAM

  • The backpack progam is new to MMS. Many kids get backpack food in elementary school but when they get to middle school that source is no longer available. Here at MMS we have started the backpack program so that those students can continue to get assistance. This program sends a grocery bag full of a variety of food home every Friday with its willing participants. Students get fed breakfast and lunch during the weekdays and this is something that can help make the weekends a little less stressful. If you feel that recieving food is something that could help your family out, either fill out the attached form at the bottom of this page (Permission Slip) or call Ms. Scott at 828-428-2326 and ask that one be sent home. It is NOT required for your child to have recieved this in elementary school to get it here at MMS. Just fill out the form and your child will be added to the list. There is a certain number that we can take so if we reach that number it will be a first come basis. Right now with this being so new we have plenty of space. If you have any questions feel free to give me a call or email me at shalon_scott@catawbaschools.net
