The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office Association is helping support and get the word out about a program for kids in Onalaska. It is called the Backpack Snack Program and is to help needy K-8 school kids have food to eat over the weekend when they are not at school where food is available to them.

Each qualifying child will receive a backpack filled with snacks and food on Friday to take home. On Monday, they return it to school to be filled up again the following Friday. 

The following is a list of items we can use to get the backpacks filled (the items don’t have to be name brand):

Chicken Top Ramen

Beef Top Ramen

Quaker Instant Oatmeal

Carnation Instant Breakfast drink mix

Nutrigrain Breakfast bars 

Instant Mac n Cheese

Quaker Chewy granola bars

Stretch Island Fruit Co. fruit leather strip

Tree top fruit chews

Del Monte fruit cup

Annie’s homegrown cracker/cookie

Austin’s cracker (peanut butter/cheese)

Capri Sun Juice

Canned Soup

Any other nonperishable nutritious items that a child would enjoy

We are also accepting backpacks in new or great condition.

ITEMS CAN BE DONATED IN THE COLLECTION BOX at the Sheriff’s Office, the Pizza Grill in Onalaska, or Onalaska School District Office.

Items donated to the Sheriff’s Office will be delivered to Onalaska School District at the end of the month.

Cash donations are also being accepted.

Thank you for your support!
