Blessings in a Backpack, Frederick provides backpacks of supplemental nutrition over weekends and school breaks to 2,500+ children in 17 local schools. The children we feed are at-risk of going hungry whenever school meals are unavailable. That’s 65 hours from lunch in school on Friday to breakfast Monday morning…65 hours without proper nutrition and an empty belly….65 hours! Adequate nutrition helps children return to school on Monday ready to participate and learn.
If it’s more convenient, some foods may also be shipped directly through Amazon.
For additional information, please contact Karen Fishburn, Food Donation Coordinator Karellewllew@yahoo.com.
