EFMS Backpack Program helps out hungry children. Click for information.

EFMS Backpack program is funded by Second Harvest Food Bank in collaboration with Forsyth Backpack Program.  The program provides nutritional kid-friendly food for weekends and holidays.  The food is sent home every Friday with the student.  The program is anonymous with only the program administrators knowing the students.  Students can pick up permission slips from Guidance or Room 506 (Ms. Teel).  If there are questions please call the EFMS Guidance Office (Mrs. Williams).
