Support our Food 4 Kids Backpack Program through our annual Dollar-A-Dish Campaign!


More than 60 restaurants, breweries and cafes are participating in this year’s Dollar-A-Dish campaign. Each participating location selects a signature dish and/or drink, and every time that menu item is ordered, $1 is donated to the Food 4 Kids Backpack Program.

About the Food 4 Kids Backpack Program

The Food 4 Kids Backpack Program provides weekend backpacks filled with nutritious food to elementary school students living in poverty. Kids on the program receive free school meals Monday through Friday, but face hunger at home on the weekends. The backpack of food they receive sees them through the weekend so they can return to school ready to learn on Monday.  Click here for more detailed information about the program and participating schools.
