Beach Bags


Did you know that there are children right here in Virginia Beach who do not have enough to eat? It’s hard to believe, but it’s true. This is especially the case during weekends and school vacations when children cannot take advantage of available school breakfasts and lunches. Fortunately, Virginia Beach City Public Schools Parent Connection is addressing this critical need through the Beach Bags program.

Starting on October 28th through November 11th , The Backyard will be running a food drive in an effort to assist with the Beach Bag program of Virginia Beach. Following is a list of needed items:

 Individual small cereal boxes

8 oz. shelf stable milk

Shelf stable main course items (ravioli, spaghetti and meatballs, beef stew, macaroni cheese, chunky soups)

4 oz. or larger fruit cups or 100% juice boxes

Snack Items (granola bars, toaster pastries, cereal bars, pudding cups, raisins, pretzels, trail mix, snack crackers, peanut butter crackers, cheese crackers)
