Our History

The Forsyth Backpack Program, a grass-roots non-profit organization, was incorporated in the fall of 2012 to bring together a group of volunteers who worked with various Backpack and weekend feeding programs in Forsyth County. This group sees a need to work collaboratively rather than competitively to achieve the shared goal of feeding chronically hungry school children and making our community a better place for all.
