Mission Statement

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.

Description

Bayou City Blessings, launched by the Holy Spirit Episcopal community (www.holyspirithouston.org/bcb/) in 2012, currently serves 850 pre-K -5th grade children attending Blackshear and Spring Shadows Elementary schools. Blackshear Elementary, in the heart of Houston’s 3rd ward, is located in a "food desert," defined by the USDA as having little to no access to fresh food or grocery stores. Spring Shadows’ neighborhood is considered a "food insecure" area making it difficult for families to access the resources necessary to provide consistent food options for their children, especially when away from school.
