Frontier Pantry Backpack Program is a weekly backpack program for students who attend Frontier Middle School. There is no income qualification to participate in the program. Backpacks are distributed to participating students on Friday to take home each week. Student shops the pantry every week to identify needed items that will go in the backpack.
