The JetPack Project is a backpack food program providing nutritious, non-perishable food to children each weekend during the school year. If your family is in need of food assistance, please let us help. Our schools provide high standards and very challenging academic goals for our children. To succeed, students must be ready to learn. Adequate nutrition—fuel for the mind—is essential. Having adequate food on the weekend helps a child succeed in the classroom on Monday.
Each student who participates in the JetPack program will receive a packet of food each Friday containing basics for breakfast and lunch for Saturday and Sunday for the child. Packets are distributed discreetly (slipped into backpacks or lockers) so as not to draw attention to the child. Information collected on the registration form, as well as the names of children participating, is kept confidential between The Well and the school. The food is provided at no cost to you or your child.
The JetPack program at each campus is a cooperative effort of The Well, your school, and the sponsoring organization that funds and packs the bags. In the JetPack, you will receive further information about The Well and the sponsoring organization.
