How does Blessings in a Backpack work?

Local Stories

Feeding Kids in Your Own Backyard

Children shouldn’t spend the summer worrying about going hungry; they should be out playing in the sun. This May, get involved and give back to help feed kids who might otherwise go hungry.

2022 National Volunteer Week

During National Volunteer Week, Blessings in a Backpack is celebrating its volunteers!
We want to express our appreciation for the impact they make on children’s lives.

Ponte Vedra Gardens residents pack food for children in need

Residents of Ponte Vedra Gardens Alzheimer’s Special Care Center in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, pack bags of weekend food for local children. “It gives our residents a way to give back to the community and feel purposeful.”
