The Eastside Backpack Program provides keiki healthy and nutritious food each Friday for those keiki who attend the after school activities at the Kapaa Activity Center located on the campus of Kapaa Elementary School and Kapaa High School. Each backpack contains sufficient nutritious and healthy food for a child and his/her siblings for the weekend. This collaborative program with the Kapaa Boys and Girls Club distributes nearly 100 backpacks each week for 40 weeks from August to May to keiki ages 7-17.
In collaboration with Kula Aupuni Ni'ihau A Kahelelani Aloha Public Charter School and the Ke Kula Ni'ihau O Kekaha Learning Center Public Charter School in Kekaha, they distribute backpacks filled with nutritious food each Friday to approximately 100 keiki for a 43 week program from August to May. The nutritious food in the backpack is frequently the primary food for the child and his/her siblings over the weekend. This fall, the Anahola Hawaiian Charter School will join the Backpack program.
