ChoiceOne Bank Continues Support for “Backpack” Weekend Meals Program

ChoiceOne Bank is pleased to announce its continued support of $5,000 for the “Backpack” Weekend Meals Program offered through Lapeer Sunrise Kiwanis.

Lapeer Sunrise Kiwanis has sponsored the “Backpack” Weekend Meals Program for over 13 years. The "Backpack" program provides nutritious food every weekend during the school year for elementary children at 4 Lapeer schools. The program's name comes from the fact that each child's food is provided in a backpack that the child takes home with them each weekend. Without the “Backpack” program, these children might otherwise go hungry. 

“As the local community bank, we believe healthy communities start with healthy families,” said ChoiceOne President Michael J. Burke, Jr. “When food insecurity is a problem for the families in our communities, this program helps to make sure the children in these schools have the food and nutrition they need over the weekend. It has been a successful program and we are truly grateful to continue our support.”
