Blessings in a Backpack

An estimated 18 million children now experience food insecurity—that’s one in four children—due in part to disruptions caused by Covid-19. Throughout the pandemic, Blessings in a Backpack has continued its goal of preventing childhood hunger.

The nonprofit provides food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry. They mobilize communities, individuals, and resources to bring hunger-free weekends to 88,000 kids in 46 states and Washington, DC, with the help of 15,000+ volunteers.
