2021-2022 Weekend Backpack and Tanager Take-Out Registration
The Welcome Table has helped ensure children and youth in Vermillion have enough to eat on weekends and summer months through the Weekend Backpack program and Tanager Take-Out (a school-based food pantry). Both programs provide healthy and easy-to-prepare items for children and youth to eat over the weekend.
The Weekend Backpack program provides a weekly bag of food, containing 13-15 various food items, to children before they leave school each Friday or the last day of the school week. The Weekend Backpack program is only available during the school year.
At Tanager Take-Out (TTO), children and their families are welcome to shop for various food items plus school and health care supplies. During the school year, Tanager Take-Out is open weekly on Fridays from 3:45-5:15 PM. During the summer months, Tanager Take-Out is open on Thursdays from 3:00-5:30 PM. Tanager Take-Out is located at the Vermillion High School.
