Salem Backpack Program

The Backpack Program will resume when school resumes. 


The Salem Backpack Program began in 2012 with just ten students at the Carlton Innovation School and now serves nearly 200 children at all 6 elementary schools. Every Friday of the school year, students are sent home with two breakfasts, two lunches, snacks, applesauce, juice, milk and fresh fruit.
