Backpack Buddy Program


Dear Valley Parent/Guardian,

There is a wonderful, community program called “Backpack Buddies”.  This program is intended to support the nutritional needs of our young developing children of families experiencing financial hardships. The students involved will be provided, weekly, with a freebag of food to take home, prepare and eat over the weekend. The food items will be delivered discretely and care will be taken to not draw attention to the child.   

Food will be made available by the local community and delivered to Valley.  Some of the items included will be cans of fruit, vegetables, pudding, microwaveable items, as well as cereal, granola bars, peanut butter and fruit juice. The food packages are meant to help families with a food source for their children over the weekend and also to help promote healthy eating practices. 

This program is available in many neighboring communities such as Centerville and Kettering, and we want to make it available to our Beavercreek families also. Participation in the program is voluntary.  Currently, this program is available in all 6 elementary buildings.    

Please complete the form below and return it to your child’s teacher. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Mrs. Fisher, Valley School Counselor, at 458-2575.
