Hi, I am Monty! I wanted to tell you a little bit more about what we do. Mountain Lion BackPack Program (MLBP) and how you can help support children in our community experiencing food insecurity! Wondering how you can help?

  • Volunteer to help pack items weekly to ensure these essential items can make it home each weekend.

  • Sponsor a child! Just $6 feeds one child per week, and a generous donation of $210 can feed a child all school year!

  • Be a Mountain Lion Backpack Hunger Hero: Stay alert for MLBP food drives across our community to donate necessary food items to our program!


Interested in Receiving from MLBP?

Follow up with the elementary school your child(ren) are enrolled in. Students who need additional food support will receive supplemental food items to bring home with them over the weekend.
