Our Future

With the start of the 2021/22 school year, Blessings in a Backpack is entering the first year of our three-year strategic plan. Our plan has us working towards providing 4 million hunger-free weekends (or bags of ready-to-eat food) annually for school-aged children by the end of the 2023/24 school year. Our three-year priorities include:

  • Offer people and partners new, diverse ways to help close the weekend nutrition gap for children by sharing their time and talent. 
  • Optimize and replicate growth strategies to feed more kids through our volunteer teams and our chapters.
  • Continue to expand our national food solution to get the best food at the lowest price possible for our kids.

Follow along with us as we feed more children each weekend of the year! Or better yet, join us, and help feed a hungry child this weekend!
