Weekend Backpack Food Bags

The Weekend Backpack Ministry would like to thank all of the St. Rose parishioners for their gifts of food items to fill Weekend Backpack bags for 32 children from food-insufficient homes in a Rutherford County Elementary and High School. With your help, our ministry has prepared 108 Backpack Bags each month.

Here is a current list of needed individual sized food items:

  • Shelf stable milk (any flavor)
  • Fruit Juice
  • Chef Boyardee Pasta Bowls
  • Vienna Sausage
  • Protein Bars, Fruit and Grain Bars, Pop Tarts
  • Hot Chocolate
  • Campbell’s Chicken Noodle “Cup of Soup” Packets
  • Kraft Easy Mac & Cheese Packets
  • Peanut Butter Crackers
  • Fruit Bowls, Raisins
