For millions of American Children, School = Food
COVID-19 school closures have taught us that school is more than reading, writing, and arithmetic.
It's a place where kids feel safe and secure and have access to meals during the week.
Help ensure kids have food on the weekends too

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 the weekends, to now serving kids while schools are closed.
