Local Programs

The Blessings in a Backpack Northwest Oregon Chapter was launched on April 1, 2020, to continue providing weekend food support to the hundreds of local school-aged children fed by Take Action INC (TAI), a Lake Oswego-based weekend food program whose founders and board members were ready to retire after ten years of service.

Blessings in a Backpack Northwest Oregon is proud to continue their important work and currently provides our signature weekend packs to 930 kids in 30 schools across five counties every weekend.
