Wednesday, June 7 will be the final backpack drop-off time for this school year.

Donations will be due Sunday, June 4, and we will fill backpacks for delivery to Ramsey on Wednesday, June 7. Packing help is appreciated; you may contact Tamara Gebhardt at

Requested foods are canned corn, peanut butter, rice, canned tuna or chicken, canned fruit, mac & cheese, canned ravioli or spaghettios and cereal (Cheerios, Rice Krispies and MiniWheats).

Cash donations are used to purchase fresh fruit and any items of which we are short. Brueggers at 46th & Nicollet donates bagels to add to the backpacks as well.

Thanks to all of your efforts, 15 Ramsey Middle School families have had supplemental food every month of school.  Remember – we are making a difference!
