Welcome to Food to Go Anacortes!
Food To Go Anacortes is a weekend backpack food program for Anacortes students that launched in September of the 2015/16 school year. Our goal is to provide healthy and nutritious supplemental weekend meals for those children in our community that don’t have enough to eat over the weekend in order to improve their health and their ability to learn.
Currently, we are providing supplemental weekend food bags to between 135 and 165 Anacortes students-elementary thru high school age-each week. Food to Go Anacortes helps to fill the weekend gap for students in our community that need help with having enough to eat over the weekend.
