Communities in Schools of Cape Fear can continue to provide pre- prepared food through our BackPack Program to children who would normally go home to empty pantries. New Hanover County Schools have helped us identify children that could be falling through the cracks. We have worked with school counselors, social workers and teachers to provide a safety net for the children in our community.
