Below is the packing schedule for the Mountain Lion BackPack Program 2019-2020 school year.  Food bags are packed every Thursday evening during the school year, except in cases where there is no school on Friday.  In those cases, packing nights are the night before the last day of the school week.  These dates are written in bold italics below.


Packing begins at the warehouse at 5pm.  Please arrive early, so we are ready to start at 5pm.  The warehouse is the former Butterick Building, 2900 Beale Avenue, Altoona. **NEW LOCATION** We are located at the end of the warehouse closest to 29th Street with a set of docks.  Please enter the door next to the docks.


In the event of schedule changes, announcements will be made on the Mountain Lion BackPack Program Facebook page and all group leaders will be notified.  This schedule will only change in the event of changes to the school calendar from the school district. 


If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please contact Amber Smith at 814-946-3651 or at
