Summer Gap Program


The Fuel Up food program provides backpacks of food to Perry Harrison students to meet their nutritional needs during weekends and breaks in the regular school year months. Food is provided through donations only, no tax dollars are spent on the program.


We need support in obtaining food for our students this summer. Ways you can help:

  1. Sign up for Fund-A-Bag.  $150 will feed 1 student for the summer.  $30 will feed 1 student for two weeks.

Fund-A-Bag allows the Fuel Up team to buy fresh produce and shelf stable items.  We will buy the items in bulk then pack it for distribution.  You can donate online here (credit cards accepted), send a check to the school by August 1.  Please make checks payable to Fuel Up at PHS. If we raise enough money to cover food for the entire Summer Gap, any remaining money will be applied to regular year round backpack fulfillment.

  1. Donate food to Fuel Up.  Purchase shelf stable food items from Fuel Up’s Amazon wish list or other stores and mail them to the school.  Please do not drop off food items at the school.  Mail all food donations.  Deliveries accepted Monday-Thursday ONLY!
