Backpack Food Program
Copley-Fairlawn Cares is a non-profit, volunteer organization in cooperation with the Copley Outreach Center that addresses food insecurity in children in the Copley-Fairlawn City Schools.
Through the Schools, students are identified and can opt into the program. The center provides a weekend bag of food two times a month to K-12, during the school year to eligible children. A Copley-Fairlawn Cares pack is a bag of food that consists of 2 breakfast and 2 lunch items, plus 2 snacks for the weekend. The items are single serving size, easily opened and prepared, such as an oatmeal packet, mac, and cheese, canned fruit, raisins, etc.
