Backpack Coalition

LEF – Loudoun County Public Schools Backpack Coalition

Our Mission: Our mission is to provide support to a school’s existing weekend meal program or create one when funding/food is not available for food-insecure children.

Our Vision: We envision a culture where 100% of the families that need our support receive food; allowing the students to focus on their education.

Who We Are: We are a school district-approved supplemental program to existing weekend meal programs in Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS).

What We Do: We provide weekend meal bags to food-insecure children in the LCPS system, enabling their ability to focus on school studies instead of hunger.

Your Generosity at Work: Your donation supports this critical program which purchases food from Blue Ridge Area Food Bank for the LEF – LCPS Backpack Coalition Program. Your gift makes a difference in the life of our students and families: 

$5 – Provides 1 weekend meal bag

$25 – Provides 1 month of weekend meal bags

$175 – Provides 1 school year of weekend meal bags





Our Sponsors

The LEF – LCPS Backpack Coalition is grateful for the support of our sponsors who help through donations and volunteering to ensure no child has to worry about food-insecurity over the weekends.
