The Year is New and the Need is Now!

More than 15 million children in the USA go home on Fridays after school not knowing where their next meal will come from — this is where Blessings in a Backpack steps in. The bag from Blessings in a Backpack that children receive on Friday is the only food they have for 65 hours until they return to school on Monday morning. The need is silent. The need is real. The need is NOW!

The Need is Now! goal for January 2017 is to raise $50,000 to help provide more than 3.6 million hunger-free weekends for children who are facing food insecurity. By donating this month, Blessings in a Backpack can provide more meals to children and continue our efforts to make sure every school-aged child in America has the nourishment needed to learn and grow.

Please help more children experience hunger-free weekends by making a donation to feed children who are facing food insecurity. You can also share our posts and tweets with your friends using the hashtags #TheNeedisNow and #FeedtheFuture.

Thank you for your support.
