While free or reduced school lunches have proven to be incredibly beneficial to students from households experiencing financial hardship, these services are limited to the school calendar, which can leave children hungry and without basic necessities on weekends and during other school breaks. The ReNew Fill My Backpack program helps children and their families by providing kids with enough food to sustain their entire households for the weekend
