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. The Salem Backpack Program is funded through generous donations from the community, including the Salem Rotary and Salem Five.
