More than 500 backpacks were distributed during the Flagstaff Back to School Fair held on Saturday, July 11 at the Flagstaff Family Food Center — Food Bank and Kitchen.

The free backpacks were filled by volunteers with school supplies for preschool to high school students, which helped speed up the distribution process and reduce the waiting time for families who had already gathered before the 9 a.m. start time.

An additional 180 backpacks were distributed at the food center on July 14, said Hannah Brand, Children’s Literacy and Volunteer coordinator at the center.

The event was sponsored by the Flagstaff Family Food Center in partnership with the Arizona Community Foundation of Flagstaff, the Assistance League of Flagstaff and the United Way of Northern Arizona.
