Blessings in A Backpack
of Private Matching Funds Remaining
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. This past year, Blessings in a Backpack provided more than 2.8 million hunger-free weekends to 78,000 school children facing food insecurity. Each site is led by passionate volunteers who - with support from Blessings in a Backpack's national office - secure food, fill backpacks and distribute backpacks each school week to children who face food insecurity. At Francis Tucker Elementary and Palmetto Elementary, Blessings in a Backpack is providing more than 21,000 hunger-free weekends to 554 students living with food insecurity this school year.
