Weekend food-for-children “Backpack” program moving into Lincoln City’s old fire hall…


Lincoln City City Council, Monday evening

Lending a helping hand to those who send needy students home on Friday afternoons with backpacks full of weekend food, the Lincoln City City Council agreed to give the local “Backpack” program a free place to operate out of; the old city fire hall at SW 4th and Ebb. City Councilors said there is plenty of room in the fire hall to accommodate the storage needs for the Business for Excellence in Youth to run the Backpack program, which now serves well over 200 kids who may not eat over the weekend due to parental neglect or the child’s family being out of money.

The council asked city staff to develop a six month lease that would be renewable after that on a month to month basis. A spokesman for the group said that the Evangelical Church on Highway 101 has generously offered space, but that the program quickly outgrew it. He said the Backpack program serves school children who attend Oceanlake and Taft Elementary Schools and Taft 7-12.
