|Nourished bodies lead to nourished minds.
Blessings in a Backpack helps to fill the gap on the weekends when school lunch programs are not available. This non-profit organization provides children with a backpack full of food every Friday to bring home to feed themselves and often their families throughout the weekend. Nourished bodies lead to stronger minds as seen by improved test scores, reading skills, positive behavior, health and increased attendance attributed to the success of this program.
$80 feeds one American school child in the Blessings in a Backpack program for an entire 38-week school year. The organization is currently feeding over 50,000 children in 376 schools across 39 U.S. states and three countries.
