End 68 Hours of Hunger Program
Northwood School is pleased to offer the End 68 Hours of Hunger program again this year. We have a great group of volunteers that fill backpacks each week for us. The backpacks are packed with food to help fill the gap between lunch on Friday and breakfast on Monday. Further information is available on the national website at http://end68hoursofhunger.org/.
Only school counselors know who is participating in the program. On Fridays, the counselors will put a bag in the participating students' cubbies or lockers, and it will come home with them that day. We then ask that you return the backpack on Monday, so it can be filled again by our volunteers for the next weekend.
If you would like to participate in this program, please email or call your child’s counselor. Any family can participate and it may be for a short term or the whole school year. We hope you will find this program helpful and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact either one of us at any time.
