Chimacum Backpacks For Kids program starts another season of boosting nutrition


PORT HADLOCK — A new season of helping the Chimacum Backpacks For Kids program is underway after a couple dozen volunteers got to work filling 74 bags with a weekend of nutrition for kids in Chimacum schools. The nonprofit is working with the Tri-Area Food Bank and the Jefferson Community Foundation to provide weekend meals and support for at-risk children in the community. A group of community volunteers has committed to gather once a week throughout the school year at the Tri-Area Food Bank at 760 Chimacum Road to fill sacks with six meals: two each of dinners, lunches, breakfasts, beverages and snacks.
