Every Sunday you are invited to bring food to Northside High School and place it in bins. Here is a listing of food (individual serving sizes) to go into each backpack: 100% Juice; Oatmeal (Box with Individual Packages); Tuna Kits; Macaroni and Cheese Singles; Peanut Butter (Small Jars); Crackers; Chicken or Vegetable Soup; Apple Sauce; Fruit Cups/Canned Fruit; Spaghettios or Ravioli; Hormel Compleats; Canned Vegetables; Canned Chili; Goldfish; Pudding; Granola Bars (those items highlighted are what is needed most.)
