Food for backpack program on wire racksEven though schools are closed, the East Greenbush Central School District Backpack Programs will continue during this temporary break. Each school has been coordinating with families enrolled in this program and are providing them with food.

During this challenging time, however, we are expanding the Backpack Program to families in the school community who also are in need of food. If you’re interested in donating, you can drop off non-perishable items at Columbia High School.

If you are in need of food, please contact Athletic Director Michael Leonard at leonarmi@egcsd.org to make arrangements for pickup.
