As a leader in the movement to end childhood hunger, Blessings in a Backpack strives to ensure children do not go hungry on the weekends by empowering individuals and communities to take action. 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.

We are looking for individuals who are interested in building their careers around ensuring kids facing food insecurity have access to satisfying, nutritional weekend nutrition.
