Holy Comforter participates in the Montgomery Public Schools Backpack Partnership. In 2017, we partnered with Fitzpatrick Elementary School. The Backpack Program works like this: Each week, volunteers sack healthy foods or snacks that a child can eat over the weekend. The sacks are delivered to the school on Friday morning. School officials identify the children who will receive the sacks of food and place the sack in each child’s backpack at the end of the day on Friday.


What’s in the bag? Contents include:

Individual packs of instant grits, oatmeal, or cereal

  • Cereal bars or multigrain bars

  • Small cans of beef stew, chili, soup, or pasta

  • Small cans of fruit

  • Boxed fruit juice or shelf safe milk

  • Pudding cups

  • Small cans of vegetables

  • Boxed mac & cheese

  • Ramen noodles

  • Peanut butter or cheese crackers
