Trick-or-Treat for Blessings in a Backpack

Kind of a scary thought that there’s more than enough candy but not enough food. As little as $150 will feed a child on the weekends for the entire school year. This Halloween, ditch the candy and trick or treat to help feed a kid throughout the school year!

The Scary Reality

  • 9 MILLION CHILDREN are experiencing food insecurity? That’s one in eight American children who may struggle with food access.
  • Poor nutrition can result in a weaker immune system, increased hospitalization, lower IQ, shorter attention spans, and lower academic achievement.
  • Some children do not know where their next meal will come from when they are not at school.
  • Children are more likely to face food insecurity than any other group in the United States.
