Buddy Bag Program

“One of the greatest feelings in the world is knowing that we as individuals can make a difference. Ending hunger in America is a goal that is literally within our grasp.” …  Jeff Bridges

Through the generous support of many local organizations and alumni, Mount Carmel Area School District provides healthy foods for students to take home each weekend during the school year.  This valuable effort gives students the opportunity to achieve to their full potential.  The education foundation and district would like to express our gratitude to all businesses and individuals who support this program.  Become a sponsor today by visiting our ‘Donate’ Page.
