Blessings in a Backpack is striving to increase awareness of childhood hunger and expand our work to ensure food insecure children experience hunger-free weekends.

In select cities, we will be hosting events to help educate individuals and community partners about childhood hunger and how they can partner with Blessings in a Backpack.
