Pack the Backpack
Hugo's Family Market Place

Join us on August 25th and 26th from 9:00 am - 7:00 pm as we collect food items to Pack the Backpack at Hugo's Family Market Place in East Grand Forks. United Way’s East Grand Forks Backpack Program fights to end childhood hunger by providing food in students’ backpacks to feed them for the weekend. A donation can help provide up to six meals for kids who need a bit more help and hope when they’re away from school. Together, we are ensuring no child goes hungry.
