Every Friday, 28 percent of Frederick County students — that’s more than 12,000 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 3,100 children in 27 local schools.
As little as $120 will feed a child every weekend for one school year!
