What Is BrainPower in a BackPack? Click here to find out

BrainPower in a BackPack is a volunteer project of ISD 191 Community Education and Burnsville High School. Our high school students pack weekend food for preschool, elementary and middle school students in ISD 191 whose families struggle to put enough food on the table. Because academic performance is related to nutrition, our goal is to improve the student learning experience for children with the greatest need in ISD 191.

How Does BrainPower in a BackPack Work?

During 2019-2020, BrainPower plans to provide more than 800 students with a bag of food each week - enough for at least four meals and two snacks. Participating students attend one of the ten elementary schools, three middle schools and preschool programs including Early Childhood Special Education and Early Childhood Family Education programs. We also provide items for a food shelf available to Burnsville High School and Nicollet Middle School students. Students are selected for BrainPower in a BackPack by school administrators, staff, social workers and parent recommendations. As this program grows, we will will be able to help more children. We have reached our ultimate goal to feed the hungriest 20% of children district-wide (more than 650 children this past school year).

The food BrainPower provides is kid-friendly, easy-to-prepare and nutritious, without requiring refrigeration. BrainPower staff purchase food and collect food donations; high school student volunteers fill the backpacks after school on Thursdays (2:35-4:00 pm) throughout the school year. Notes are included with the food to add a personal touch as well as to highlight various sponsors. Students are involved in food drives and various aspects of fund raising.

Each child receives about 10 food items each week, for which we spend approximately $4. Examples include: fresh fruit, juice, cereal, oatmeal, macaroni and cheese, soup, pasta and rice meals, veggies, fruit cups, applesauce, crackers and granola bars. BrainPower in a BackPack is free to students in the program.
