Rotary Club of Surrey is proud to support Starfish Backpack program.

Each week, Rotary Club of Surrey volunteers fill backpacks with 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, and snacks and then deliver them to 72 local Surrey schools for the students to take home on the weekend. The students return the empty backpacks to the school the following week, and our volunteers pick them up to be refilled for the following weekend.

We have a cycle of 8 menus, each menu is child-friendly. An example of some of the items includes cereal, oatmeal, pasta and pasta sauce, bagels, whole wheat tortillas, tuna or other canned meats, a variety of soups, chilli, peanut butter, jam, canned vegetables, fresh fruit, and granola bars.

It costs approximately $600 to fill a backpack for a student for the full school year.
