Blessings in a Backpack partners with Sysco nationally to provide the food our programs serve. Through the Sysco network of distribution centers, we can offer a variety of nutritional, “kid-friendly” options for our weekend food, including both case goods (aka “Line Item Menus”) and prepackaged Weekend Food Packs. Food solutions offered through the national program at Blessings in a Backpack are carefully selected to ensure that we are providing the best nutrition possible for the money spent on food.
By partnering with Sysco and several key manufacturers in a National Food Solution, we can get preferred pricing on the items we purchase. As a result, each Blessings program benefits from the combined volume of the entire Blessings network, regardless of size. Companies like Kellogg, Conagra, StarKist, and others share our vision and support Blessings in many ways.
Below are the line item and prepackaged menu options offered to our programs:
