Welcome to the official website of the Bath Area BackPack Program

The Bath Area BackPack Program mission is to generate funds to provide nutritious, easy to prepare food for food insecure children to insure that they have enough food during school-year weekends and vacations when they can’t depend on school free and reduced-price meals to avoid hunger.


With the generous help of those involved, the children of our community are benefitting:

BATH AREA BACKPACK PROGRAM provides nutritious food (Good Shepherd Food Bank plans menus and provides the food for the BackPacks)

• Eases child’s anxieties
• Reduces absenteeism, particularly on Monday morning
• Improves attention span
• Raises academic performance
• Increases self-esteem

For those of you who are new to the concept, consider donating to improve the effort that has been started and for those of you who are already on board, the children thank you!

The Bath Area BackPackProgram is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization.
