THE PANDEMIC: More than 1 year later

The Backpacks Program is so thankful to be able to continue helping the children in our district during this time. See what we have been doing

From 3/11/2020 to 5/21/2021,

 we have distributed 

13,693 bags

Sponsored by the Culver City Unified School District Council PTA (CCCPTA), the Backpacks for Kids Program provides nutritious, child-friendly, easy-to-prepare food each week to children so they don't have to deal with food insecurity on the weekends.

The Backpacks Program relies entirely on community donations, grants, and volunteers. Please help keep our program going.

volunteers pack 100s of bags of food each week

food is distributed across two school sites in Culver City

245 children fed on average every week


The Backpacks Program is run entirely by volunteers and receives no funding from the school district, state, or federal sources. Make a one-time monetary contribution, help provide food certainty with a monthly donation, or give food! Every donation goes directly to supporting the children in our Culver City schools.
