Blessings in a Backpack provides elementary school children who are on the federal Free and Reduced Price Meal Program with a backpack of food to take home for 38 weekends during the school year. Backpack food includes easy-to-prepare, ready-to-eat foods, like granola bars, juice boxes, mac and cheese, and oatmeal.
$80 - $100 feeds one child on the weekends for one 38 week school year through the Blessings in a Backpack program. 50 kids at $80 is $4,000 to get started. 100% of money raised to fund a school goes to feeding that school.
