Food To Go

f2glogo

In September 2015, Food To Go Anacortes launched a weekend backpack food program for Anacortes school children. Our goal is to provide healthy and nutritious supplemental weekend meals for those children in our community that don’t have enough to eat over the weekend in order to improve their health and their ability to learn. Visit www.foodtogoanacortes.com .

Quick facts:

• It costs $190 per school year to support one child with food for the weekend: $5/bag per week, 38 weeks per school year.
• Food to Go Anacortes plans to expand into Anacortes Middle School and Anacortes High School in March of 2016. At that point the number of children receiving weekend meals will be over 150 students.
• These children are the neediest 3% of our school population (selected by our school counselors from the 30 % of children already receiving free and reduced breakfasts and lunches at school during the week).
• Our annual budget is $28,500: $190/ year per student times 150 students- 100% OF DONATIONS GO TO PURCHASING FOOD.


• Each weekend food bag contains at least the following:

-2 ready-to-eat meals (ravioli, lasagna, stew, etc...)
-2 shelf-stable milks
-2 cereal boxes
-2 snacks (granola bars, healthy cookies, trail mix, etc...)
-2 fresh fruits
