Welcome

Fuel Up at Perry Harrison School is a backpack food program which provides students with nutritious meals and snacks for weekends and other breaks from school. Families whose children are eligible for the Free and Reduced meal program are encouraged to apply to participate in the Fuel Up program if they feel their children are not getting adequate food at home. The school guidance counselor and social workers select the students to be served. Parent volunteers and other students do not know which students are participating in the program, as bags are filled anonymously and distributed discreetly.
