We need your help in making sure kids right here in the tri-state are getting good, healthy meals when the school week is over.

Unfortunately for many kids in Evansville, the best (and sometimes only) meals they get are during the school day. Due to tough financial situations at home, where parents are faced with putting food on the table or keeping a roof over the family’s head, many of these kids don’t get the important nutrition they need on the weekends or over holiday breaks.

State Farm Agent Mary Rokicki, Desktop Doctors, Absolute iRepair and Townsquare Media are proud to help support the Evansville-Vanderburgh School Corporation’s Backpack Club. The goal of the Club is to fill backpacks full of non-perishable food items which the EVSC discreetly delivers to the students who need it most.

Food donations can be dropped off at the Townsquare Media offices in downtown Evansville, Desktop Doctors on the West side of Evansville, and Absolute iRepair on the West side of Evansville, or at the office of State Farm Agent Mary Rokicki on the south end of the Schnuck’s complex on North Green River Rd. See map below for directions.

These are the items we’re looking for:

  • 100% fruit juice in aseptic packaging
  • Entrees (shelf stable), i.e. Lunchables or cans in individual serving size
  • 2% milk in aseptic packaging
  • Small cans of vegetables and fruits
  • Oatmeal
  • Tuna salad kits
  • Cereal bars
  • Microwave lunch cups, i.e. ravioli, etc.
  • Cereal individual servings in bowls or boxes
  • Raisins
  • Pop-tarts
  • Trail mix
  • Soup
  • Dried Fruit
  • Peanut butter
  • Crackers
  • Fruit cups – shelf stable or applesauce

All food must be in individual serving sizes and canned items must be pop-top!
