About

About Blessings in a Backpack:

When school dismisses on Friday, 15.8 million children will leave their classroom, uncertain whether they will have enough food to eat that weekend. One in five American children face food insecurity - more than the populations of New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago combined. During the school week, most of these children depend on the federal free and reduced meal program their school offers. Sometimes, the meals at school are the only ones they get. When the school closes it doors on Friday afternoon, many of these children go home to empty cupboards and hunger pangs for 65 hours until they return to school on Monday morning. Who will feed them this weekend?

We will. Due to the dedication of our volunteers throughout the country, children living with food insecurity will benefit from more than 3 million hunger-free weekends this school year.

We are seeking a Graphic Design Intern to work with our Marketing Department.
