As part of the partnership, the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) delivers food to Drew Model Elementary in the morning, and the school staff members pack the items into backpacks.
Currently six Drew Model students who are homeless or in transitional housing are taking part, but Arlington has more than 260 others without permanent homes.
AFAC Executive Director Charlie Meng says he'd like to expand.
"Many of these students will have their principal meal, during the weekday, at the school. It's not breakfast, it's not dinner...their one meal is literally at the school cafeteria," he says.
With spring break coming up, AFAC will bring extra food, and plans to give grocery gift cards to some families.
