A proper education provides the basic foundation of knowledge & knowledge is power!
School is important for learning and development which allows kids to excel later on in life, but without any school supplies it's harder for kids to fully apply themselves and get the most out of their school year.

The Chestermere Regional Food Bank provides Backpacks filled with school supplies to ensure that students of all grades and ages are prepared for the upcoming school year.
The Backpack Program runs from July to September.
To sign up for the program you can apply online, call, email, or visit the Chestermere Regional Food Bank.
