National Blessings in a Backpack Week!
Find all of the fun, virtual activities we have planned for Blessings Week, September 13–17. Activities this
week include a Photo-a-Day Challenge and much more!
Because when kids have enough food, they do better in school. This back-to-school season,
donate to help us feed the kids on the weekends. $120 will feed a child for one school year.
For a lot of kids, food is their most
important school supply
Who will feed the kids when schools are closed?
At Blessings in a Backpack, we often ask, "Who will feed the kids this weekend?" But the COVID-19 emergency has caused us
to expand our programs from feeding kids on only the weekends, to now serving kids while schools are closed.
Blessings' Response to COVID-19
Our Impact During the 2019/2020 School Year
With the help of amazing partners, we were able to feed more children that ever before
AND help kids while schools were closed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
