Every Friday, 32.9% of Frederick County students — that’s more than 15,000 kids 18 and under — leave school uncertain if they will have enough food to eat over the weekend. That’s 65 hours without proper nutrition and an empty belly! The food provided by Blessings in a Backpack offers a greater opportunity for these children to return to school better prepared to participate and learn. We currently serve 4,337 children in 30 local schools. See the schools we partner with.
As little as $150 will feed a child every weekend for one school year!
