Thank you for your consideration! Blessings In a Backpack is a is a registered 501 C (3) non-profit organization “neighbor-helping-neighbor” program that is designed to help meet the nutritional needs of children and families. We are currently packing weekend food bags for around 200 children per week from Royal Oak High School, Royal Oak Middle School, Keller Elementary School, Addams Elementary School, Northwood Elementary School, Oakland Elementary PTA--Royal Oak, MI, Oakridge Elementary School, Upton Elementary School. These students are participants in the government subsidized free or reduced fee hot lunch program. As little as $100 feeds an elementary school child in the Blessings in a Backpack program for an entire 38-week school year. The number of children we are able to feed is limited only by the financial support we are able to secure. 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. “Hunger doesn’t take a break on the weekends.” Each week, volunteers, in cooperation with school officials, distribute the packed food bags filled with enough non-perishable food for the weekend (six meals) to “food-insecure” students.
