Food 4 Kids is modeled after the Nationwide BackPack Program that provides food to needy kids on the weekends. Here in Cody we are calling it Food 4 Kids. Among all three elementary schools, an average of almost 40% of the kids are on free or reduced lunch. On the weekends, many do not have enough to eat. In October 2014, First Presbyterian Church and Christ Episcopal Church, began providing bags of food for children to take home Fridays for their weekend meals. This food is easy for them to prepare or is ready to eat.
