This is why our Club hosts the Turkey Trot!  Carol Ungren and Denise Payne from Central Kitsap Food Backpacks 4 Kids attended our Rotary meeting on December 2nd to accept $3,000 in Duck Bucks to help stuff weekend backpacks for students.  The backpacks provide supplemental meals each weekend during the school year to students and families of the Central Kitsap School District who are at risk of weekend hunger.
 
The numbers of kids in need continue to rise - Backpacks 4 Kids helps in 11 elementary schools and 3 middle schools by sending home bags to 300 families.  During the holiday season every family gets an extra bag.  This impressive accomplishment is achieved through food drives, donations, and the diligent work of dedicated volunteers.
