Children at Hatton Eielson Public School are invited to participate in a program called BackPack Blessings. The program is intended to supplement the diets of children over the weekends, and is provided through a partnership between the Hatton Area Churches and the Great Plains Food Bank. Every Friday, the BackPack Blessings provides a bag full of child-friendly, shelf-stable food for a child to take home and eat over the weekend. Included are foods like cereal, microwavable meals, crackers, juice and milk. With your approval, we can send a bag of food home with your child every Friday during the school year. The program is confidential. Your child or children can participate only with your approval. There will never be a charge for it. It is funded entirely through private donations and grants.
Please stop by the school office and fill out necessary paperwork for your child/children to participate in the program.
