What Do We Do?
Blessings in a Backpack provides elementary school children who are on the federal Free and Reduced Price Meal Program with a backpack of food to take home on weekends during the school year. Backpack food includes easy-to-prepare, ready-to-eat foods, like tuna, soup, fresh fruit, and oatmeal.

Why Do We Do It?
There are 20+ million children in this country who are at risk of hunger. The consequences of hunger are much more than a growling stomach. Poor nutrition can result in a weaker immune system, increased hospitalization, lower IQ, shorter attention spans, and lower academic achievement. Children are fed during the school week by federal government programs, but we want to make sure they’re getting nutritional meals over the weekend, too.

Blessings in a Backpack is a 501 C (3) non-profit organization.

Why Brockton, MA?
Brockton - the City of Champions, is a city south of Boston, serving a diverse population of people from all walks of life. In some elementary schools in the city over 80% of the population qualify for free or reduced meals.

$80 feeds one child for an entire school year.

Good nutrition will help create the next leaders of this proud community.
