Mission Statement

Blessings in a Backpack is a results-oriented program whose mission is to feed federally qualified elementary school children on the weekends.

Description

Blessings in a Backpack mobilizes communities, individuals and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry. Better test scores, improved reading skills, positive behavior, improved health and increased attendance have all been attributed to the success of the program. Consistent with our mission to model the Love of Jesus through our Worship, Walk, and Work, Fort Foote Baptist Church is proud to be a local sponsor of a BIB program. We are currently partnering with one of our neighboring schools, Indian Queen Elementary, in Fort Washington, MD. to help ensure that eligible kids get the nourishment that they need.
