Local Missions

Providing Weekend Nourishment to School Children on the Federal Free and Reduced Meal Program

Typical Backpack Food Items

The backpacks, distributed weekly, include ready-to-eat, kid-friendly, nutritious, non-perishable and easy-to-prepare food items such as granola bars, peanut butter, tuna, cereal, crackers, mac & cheese, juice boxes, etc.

Nourished Kids Ready to Learn

Students who participate in the Blessings in a Backpack program show marked improvement in school attendance, test scores, behavior, and health. Food is an essential building block, and in this case truly is a blessing, especially to a hungry child!
