The Marquette-Alger RESA will be hosting a weekend backpack program informational event on Tuesday, April 30, at 6:00 p.m. at the Marquette-Alger RESA (321 E. Ohio St., Marquette.)
Many children do not have access to adequate meals outside of the school day. These Marquette County backpack programs make sure hundreds of kids have enough to eat every weekend.
This free event is open to any individual, organization, or business that wants to learn more about supporting these programs so that no child in Marquette County goes hungry.
The Marquette-Alger RESA is partnering with several local backpack programs to help educate participants about how these programs function and what they can do to help.
There will be prize drawings and light snacks provided.
This event is made possible by funds through the Superior Health Foundation. For more information or to learn how to register, contact Kelly Sager at (906) 226-5143.
