This school year, let's come together
Despite all the uncertainties in our world, Blessings in a Backpack is one thing kids can count on!
How can you help?
to feed kids!
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.
