The 285 Backpack Project is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Conifer and the Highway 285 communities of Conifer and Bailey, Colorado.  We help children who don't have enough food to eat at home by providing them with easy-to-prepare weekend meals and snacks throughout the school year.  By helping to sustain these children, we want to not only help meet their nutritional needs but also promote their physical, cognitive and social development, and enhance their overall sense of well-being.

                                                          This is higher than the national rate.

Our Community...Feeding OUR Kids

Did you know that one in five children in Colorado belong to families that cannot afford food or do not have regular access to food?
