Dear St. John XXIII School Families,

Family Sharing would like to share an opportunity for your child(ren) called “Bags in Backpacks.” This program provides an entire weekend supply of nutritious food for a child when school lunch and breakfast is unavailable on weekends. Each food bag, provided to each child who opts in, contains a variety of food, including yogurt, cheese sticks, sandwiches, and fruit. All food is provided to children free of charge! It is our hope that these resources will support healthy eating habits for participating students.

Bags in Backpacks is confidential, with only the building principal/office and social emotional coach knowing who chooses to opt-in to the program. If you are interested in participating, please contact Ms. Klein or Ms. Burkhalter. We will personally deliver the bags of food and snacks discreetly to your child(ren)’s backpacks each Friday before dismissal.

I encourage you to try this great program. However, if you sign up initially but later decide that you want to opt-out, please let Ms. Klein or Ms. Burkhalter know and we will take your name off the list.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ms. Klein ( or Ms. Burkhalter (


Ms. Klein and Ms. Burkhalter’
