Viking Vittles is a food backpack program led by Trinity Lutheran Church of North Branch. It provides a bag of food every Friday to any student in Sunrise River School, ECFE or Phoenix Academy who signs up to participate. Each bag will contain two breakfast items, two lunch items and two snacks. The goal of the program is to help food insecure families stretch their food budget.

To make this program successful it will take a village. They are asking area businesses, community organizations, churches and individuals to help support these children who may otherwise go hungry when they are not in school.

Donations should be sent to Family Pathways, 6413 Oak St., North Branch, MN 55056 with a note that it is for Viking Vittles. You can also hold a food drive or donate excess garden produce and Family Pathways will credit $1 per pound to the program, just make sure you tell them it is for Viking Vittles.
