Bobcat Backpacks (a program under the Radford City Schools Partners for Excellence Foundation) has a mission to feed hungry Radford City children who are food insecure over the weekends. Since 2016, we have been working to meet the needs of these children with dignity, consistency, and nutrition. Originally a club at Radford University, Bobcat Backpacks grew into a community effort that now serves 180 students every week with weekend food bags and two pantries. With the help of school administrators and teachers, children are identified as having a weekend food need. Bobcat Backpacks uses a huge network of donors, sponsors, community volunteers, Radford University student volunteers, our local Food Lion, and Feeding America Southwest Virginia to raise funds and food to serve these hungry children. We hope you are able to help us help our Bobcats!
