Due to COVID-19 we are not currently accepting food donations.  

If you would like to donate financially please visit our donate page and help us feed the kids of Frederick County during this emergency. 

Donate Food

Blessings in a Backpack, Frederick provides backpacks of supplemental nutrition over weekends and school breaks to over 2,600+ children in 19 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.  Please be sure to include a “gift card” so that we can thank you.

For additional information, please contact Karen Fishburn, Food Donation Coordinator Karellewllew@yahoo.com.
