The North County Food Bank's FOOD 4 KIDS Backpack Program provides weekend backpacks filled with nutritious food to elementary school students living in poverty (Escondido's Lincoln Elementary is in the program).

Kids on the program receive free breakfasts and lunches at school Monday through Friday but face hunger at home on the weekends. The backpack of food they receive sees them through the weekend so they can return to school ready to learn on Monday.  To feed one child for the entire school year costs $200; for one month it costs $22, and for one weekend it costs $5.50.
