Ferris Foundation Supports Backpack Program

The Carl and Constance Ferris Charitable Foundation has once again generously honored our work with the Backpack Programs in Kent County. The Food Pantry received a $20,000 donation to be used to purchase food for the 289 Kent County Public School students presently receiving weekend “Backpack” food.

For fiscal year 2016, the Food Pantry purchased over $28,000 of food to assist the six local programs serving our schools. This charitable gift therefore makes a huge contribution towards enabling the Pantry to continue our mission of helping children who live with food insecurity.
