Blessings In a Backpack is a neighbor-helping-neighbor program that is
designed to help meet the nutritional needs of children each week.
Volunteers in cooperation with school officials distribute backpacks
filled with enough non-perishable food for the weekend to students,
the goal of the Blessings in a Backpack program is to keep these students
from going hungry on the weekends and remove barriers to academic success.

Our program Karing 4 Kidz is proud to be a chapter of Blessings in a Backpack.
