Recruiting Organization: Blessings in a Backpack Frederick MD
We provide our children with nutritious, kid-friendly, ready-to-eat food items each weekend. We are unsure of the child’s home situation, so we provide items that require minimal preparation and avoid the use of kitchen appliances such as a can opener. Collected food must be packaged in a sealed container or pouch with ingredients listed. Please inspect all food for any dents or damage and ensure that expiration dates are within 30 days.
You can drop off any of the items below at our storage facility at 1016 N Market St Frederick MD 21701. There are black bins on our back porch ready for your donations.
You can also have items shipped directly from an online source to the same address.
