End Childhood Hunger in Your Community!

As a leader in the movement to end childhood hunger, Blessings in a Backpack strives to ensure that no child goes hungry on the weekends by empowering individuals and communities to take action.

Our backpack program is delivered through the dedication of passionate volunteers who secure food and fill and distribute backpacks each week during the school year. You make it possible for us to launch new program sites and feed children who face food insecurity each week. Without the tremendous impact of our volunteers, we can’t feed our children. This past school year, 4,000 volunteers provided more than 2.8 million hunger-free weekends to 80,000 children at 800 locations.

Your time, energy and enthusiasm is needed to make a difference in a child’s life. CLICK HERE to complete the Volunteer Interest Form.

Pack a Backpack

Volunteers pack and distribute backpacks to 80,000 kids in the Blessings in a Backpack program on a weekly basis. A great opportunity for individuals of all ages and backgrounds—high school and college students in need of service hours, retirees looking for ways to share their skills and expertise, and current workers looking meaningful ways to make an immediate impact in a child’s life.
