Backpacks

Back Packs Serve another Purpose …Food for the Weekend!

 

Backpacks are a discrete way for children to carry food home from their school’s food bank to assist their families over the weekend.

   

Let’s “chip-in” by donating Backpacks to our neighborhood schools filled with start-up school supplies that will also be used to carry food home later!

Comment if you’ll help!

In the United States today, nearly 16 million children face hunger. Consequently, one in five kids are facing greater obstacles to reaching their fullest potential. The future of America lies in our children. When hunger threatens the future of a child, it threatens the future of our nation as well. 

 

More than 21 million children qualify for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program and the National School Breakfast Program. For many of these children, school meals may be the only meals they eat. What happens when they go home over the weekend? Source: Feeding America

 

 

Here's How It Works!

 

Deliver a sturdy Backpack to your neighborhood school’s office for the children on their list who need assistance. You can fill the backpack with start-up school supplies or nutritious food items if you’d like. All of it will be greatly appreciated.
