Think back to when you were a child. Most likely, you didn’t have to worry about being hungry. But for 13 million children in the United States, they have to think about it — because there could be little or no food at home and hunger doesn’t take the weekends off.
It is our responsibility, as a society, to make sure these children have the tools (i.e., food) they need to be successful. That why Blessings in a Backpack exists. We bridge the weekend hunger-gap so children can return to school on Monday mornings nourished and ready to learn and succeed.
This Valentine’s Day, let’s feed hearts and bellies together!
Make your child’s Valentine’s Day party more than candy and cards and join us in the movement to end childhood hunger. Not only will you help a child in your community, but you’ll teach the children you love the importance of giving back.
