Backpack Program

Students enrolled in the Penn Yan Central School District are eligible to participate in a program called the Backpack Program.


This program is a partnership between Milly’s Pantry, Inc. and the Penn Yan Central School District.


If you sign up, the Backpack Program will provide a bag of non-perishable food to your child every Friday afternoon to eat over the weekend. The food will be located in the PYMS Atrium, the 6th grade hallways and room 313 (for private pick-up there will be bags available in School Social Worker’s Office) and participating students will be responsible to pick up a bag during a work period or after school every Friday.


To enroll your child in the program, please fill out the participation form and return it to the Middle School Office.  If you have any questions, please contact Meghan Trombley, PYMS School Social Worker at 315-536-4300, ext. 5313
