The Vermillion Backpack Project (VBP) works with school staff to provide a free supply of meals and snacks to students who may need an additional food resource over weekends during the school year. The food is given to the children before they leave school each Friday (or, in case of holiday, the last day before the break). This service is provided as discreetly as possible, and at no charge. If you believe that your child would benefit from this assistance, please register her/him right away. Any child enrolled in the Vermillion Public Schools, Vermillion Head Start, or St. Agnes School may participate.
