The Dover-Foxcroft Kiwanis Charities and RSU 68 are excited to announce that we will be offering the food backpack program for the 2020-2021 school year, open to grades Pre-K through 8. We will be distributing backpacks at least once a month for anyone who signs up. If you choose to enroll your child, he or she will receive a backpack with nutritious food primarily for lunches and dinners. 

The backpacks and food are provided at no cost to you, and participation is completely voluntary. Food will be provided in new reusable shopping bags each delivery (and we will not want the bags back due to COVID-19 guidelines). Our hope is to grow the program throughout the year to include non-perishable items, fresh fruits/vegetables, and frozen foods such as bread or meats. If you have questions about the program, please contact Nichole Martin or Courtney Arcaro at 564-6535 or Rita Page at 717-4705. 

If you would like to participate, please email your student’s name to and a phone number where you can be reached. Pick-up for remote students will be on Fridays from 1:30p – 2:30p.
