LISD Backpack Food Program
The Journey is a solid partner with LISD in the Backpack Food Program. The Backpack Food Program provides meals and snacks each weekend and the Long Holiday Breaks for elementary school kids that are in need. Many of these kids do not have food at home and the only meal they will get is through the free or reduced lunch programs at school. All participants in the program remain totally confidential.
The Journey is committed to providing weekend meals to 29 children at Bagdad Elementary School. We also provide Holiday Boxes for the children and their families to help them during the Holiday Break.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in….” Matthew 25:35

To do this, you can donate through Online Giving on our website or by providing a check on Sunday (make sure you mark your check “Backpack Program”).
2) You can join the monthly delivery rotation to take food supplies from HEB to Rouse high school during school hours Monday-Wednesday. Click HERE to sign up.
