In 2018–2019, Blessings in a Backpack provided more than 135,900 hunger-free weekends for thousands of elementary school students living in the First Coast who are facing food insecurity.
Almost 4,000 children receive Blessings in a Backpack every Friday, but sadly, approximately 90,000 local children qualify for our program. Our goal is to increase the number of children being fed by 500 this school year.
Who will feed the kids this weekend?
Together, we will!
