How does Blessings in a Backpack work?

Local Stories

KFC puts the #ChickenSandwichWars on hold to fight a greater enemy: childhood hunger

For every chicken sandwich sold on Giving Tuesday, KFC will donate $1 to Blessings in a Backpack, with a minimum donation of $250,000 and a maximum donation of $300,000.

How You Can Help Provide Hunger-Free Weekends, Safely

One of the many ways to get involved with our mission to end childhood hunger over the weekends is to host a packing event to fill food bags that will be donated to those in need.
