The BWFP was awarded $8,500 through the CaroMont Health Foundation for the upcoming 2023-24 school year. Funding will help feed students in need and support critical program needs that help propel the program in the community.
We cannot express how appreciative the BWFP is to the CaroMont Health Foundation for their loyal support of the BWFP. Their philanthropic beliefs and contributions have and will continue to have a positive impact on Gaston County School’s children.
For more than a decade, CaroMont Health has supported the mission of the BackPack Weekend Food Program. As a strategic partner, the program is able to provide weekend meals to 800 – 1,000 students each school year under their corporate partnership arrangement with US Foods. This affiliation allows the BWFP to purchase food in bulk at a reduced cost. CaroMont is also an official partner of Sadler Elementary School and helps delivery food bags to nearly 60 students during the school year.
