Blessings in a Backpack mobilizes communities, individuals and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry.
Most people can’t wait for the weekend. Kids at risk of hunger can’t wait for it to be over.
To ensure the kids in our community have full bellies over the weekend, Blessings in a Backpack sends them home on Fridays with backpacks full of satisfying and nutritional food. Who will feed the kids this weekend?
Every school-aged child in America has the nourishment needed to learn and grow. As a leader in the movement to end childhood hunger, Blessings strives to ensure children don't go hungry on the weekends by empowering individuals and communities to take action.
Blessings in a Backpack is celebrating a decade of feeding kids on the weekends and looking forward to the future. Learn More.
