Many students fall below the poverty line. This allows them to get breakfast and lunch either at a discounted rate or for free during school days. On weekends they might not have food available for them at home. Every Friday, the schools pass out backpacks of food to these students which allows them to make meals and snacks for the weekend. Sai Charities of Austin provides food for this “backpack program” at Running Brushy Middle School and five elementary schools in Leander ISD.
