Fill My Backpack

While free or reduced school lunches have proven to be incredibly beneficial to students from households experiencing financial hardship, these services are limited to the school calendar, which can leave children hungry and without basic necessities on weekends and during other school breaks. The ReNew Fill My Backpack program helps children and their families by providing kids with enough food to sustain their entire households for the weekend.


ReNew partners with organizations, sponsors, and community members to help increase the well-being of economically disadvantaged and otherwise marginalized segments of the community.

Through Fill My Backpack, Renew distributes backpacks filled with healthful snacks to metro Atlanta elementary-school students who are receiving reduced or free lunches. We also maintain contact with the children's families in order to make sure they have enough to eat during the holidays as well as during spring and summer breaks.

Partner with Renew to give elementary-school children from economically disadvantaged households food to sustain them during the weekends. We are currently accepting donations of healthful foods and snacks, including cereal, crackers, fruit snacks, peanut butter, trail mix, popcorn, canned tuna or chicken, etc.

Or you can let us do the shopping for you, with a donation of only $15 you can provide 2 children with backpacks filled with nutritious foods and snacks such as dried fruit, whole-grain crackers, granola bars, and canned or vacuum-packed tuna, salmon, and chicken.
