Local Fare

Thank you to our new partners Local Fare Jax for helping deliver bags of food to students in the Blessings in a Backpack First Coast Chapter. It takes a village of volunteers and supporters to help feed nearly 5,000 children every week. Local Fare Jax stepped right up to be a supporter and help make sure children in the First Coast have food to eat on the weekends. 

We are thankful Local Fare Jax assisted us in transporting 500 bags from the Jacksonville Beach Marriot Packing Event to our students at Mayport Middle School. Thank you to Chris Curry and Justin Bordeaux for helping with this special delivery!  


UPS continues to deliver on its support of our First Coast Chapter! Nemours Children’s Health in Jacksonville packed 1,000 food bags for students at Andrew Robinson Elementary School this spring. UPS and their caring team ensured they were delivered to our students on time.

UPS has been a longtime supporter of First Coast Blessings in a Backpack. Special thanks to our board member Wyatt Haynes for coordinating and making this all happen!
