BrainPower in a BackPack is a volunteer project of District 191 Community Education and Burnsville High School.  BHS high school students pack weekend food for elementary, middle and preschool school students in whose families struggle to put enough food on the table. Because academic performance is related to nutrition, our goal is to improve the student learning experience for children with the greatest need in ISD 191.  Currently, BrainPower provides an estimated 700 weekend food packages to students in need of which 200 food packages go to students in the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage area.

Bring in a non perishable food item and support BrainPower!  Thanks for donating!!
