BOCO Backpack was started 8 years ago to help the high percentage of children who receive free or reduced lunches. BOCO workers and 2nd Harvest purchase food, assemble it in backpacks, then deliver it to students at schools on Thursdays before they are sent home for the 3-day weekend. Each backpack contains approximately 7 pounds of food which provides each child basic nutrition for 3 days. BOCO receives funding for this project through grants and private donations.

Boundary County Victim Services is available to assist victims of all types of crimes by providing information to work through the legal and court systems. BCVS provides support, information, education, and referral services to victims and their immediate families, witnesses, and survivors.
