Thanks to the generosity of Austell Presbyterian Church and Christian Aid Mission Partnership (C.A.M.P) , Hendricks is able to offer students and families Backpack Blessings, a weekend food program to assist in consistent and substantial nutrition.
HOW IT WORKS: Parent/Guardians complete registration form and return it to the school counselors. Backpack Blessings forms can be requested by students or families from counselors, teachers, or front office staff. Do not hesitate to ask!
Counselor and staff will assist the student in putting at least 5 food items in their backpack to take home and enjoy over the weekend. The items will consist mostly of individual portions to supplement weekend meals and have “child- friendly” preparation methods.The program lasts throughout the year.
