The Vigo County School Corporation is teaming up with the city of Terre Haute, Terre Haute Fire Department and County Fire Departments to provide an alternative option for some students on days where Vigo County schools cancel because of weather.
The Corporation’s Back Pack program provides snacks and other foods to students who are on free or reduced lunch.
These students rely on the corporation for daily lunch and breakfast.
Terre Haute City Fire Department Stations, alongside County Fire stations will now provide the Back Pack program snacks on days where school cancels due to inclement weather.
This program is extremely important to some students who might not have proper food otherwise.
