backpack "Community Backpack" is an online bulletin board where local non-profit organizations may post fliers announcing special events and programs for children and families. Organizations interested in posting a flier should email it to bkohn@mcas.k12.in.us. (Please send information in .pdf format if possible.)
 
The event should be in or very close to MCAS attendance boundaries, and it should pertain to or involve students. Please suggest a length of time for the flier to be posted. Sorry - no campaign events or ads/offers by for-profit businesses.

Questions? Call (219) 873-2000, ext. 8365

Note: Inclusion of a flier or announcement does not imply an endorsement of a project or program by the Michigan City Area Schools. Non-profit organizations may also make fliers and announcements available at school buildings for distribution from the office, however information will not be sent home with students. For approval of all fliers, contact Communications Director Betsy Kohn at bkohn@mcas.k12.in.us or call (219) 873-2000, ext. 8365.

  • Farmer's Market SNAP Matching Program

    by

    The Michigan City Mainstreet Association has a new program called the “Farm to Table SNAP Matching Program”. During the 2016 market season, individuals will be able to use SNAP credits to purchase produce and food items. Michigan City Mainstreet Association’s Farm to Table SNAP Matching program will match dollar for dollar an individual's SNAP credits up to $25 per week. This means that families will be able to swipe their SNAP cards for $25 and they will receive $50 in credit to be used with vendors.

    Because of our limited resources, the Farm to Table SNAP Matching Program will be capped at $3000 and will expire at the end of the 2016 season. Funds are available on a first come first serve basis. Once the grant is used up for 2016, individuals will still be encouraged to use both SNAP and WIC at the market.
