Erin's Angels -- Backpack Program
Erin's Angels is a food assistance program sponsored by the Southern Oswego County Council of Churches. The program decreases the burden of hunger in the Phoenix Central School District by providing a weekend food assistance program. Since nutrition affects cognitive, social and emotional development, children who do not get proper foods are more likely to have problems learning, growing and interacting. Erin's Angels ensures that children who rely on subsidized lunches continue to receive food vital to their growth and development.
Backpacks will be sent home on weekends beginning Friday Oct. 6, 2017.
Foods needed / will be sent home:
-- Cereal bars / granola bars
-- Oatmeal packets
-- Fruit snacks
-- Slim Jims
-- Peanut butter crackers
-- Cheese crackers
-- Animal crackers
-- Applesauce cups
-- Fruit cups
-- Macaroni & Cheese (just add water)
-- Chex Mix
-- Fig Newtons
