Neuhoff Media Lafayette and Tate & Lyle want to help those students in our area who are struggling with hunger during our “Backpack Build Up” campaign to support Food Finders Food Bank’s Backpack Program. Your donation can help those children right here in Tippecanoe County get the food they need to relieve hunger. Plus, Tate & Lyle will match up to $3,000 in donations!
Currently, the Backpack Program is serving 770 children in Tippecanoe County alone. Child Food Insecurity Rate in Tippecanoe County is 5,910 children, or .2. Each backpack is full of 6 – 8 lbs. of non-perishable food every Friday during the school year. The cost is $7/child per week, or $252/child per school year.
The deadline to make a donation is Sunday, November 1st. Visit food-finders.org/backpack-program to learn more about the Backpack Program.
