Blessings in a Backpack - Denver Metro Area

If you are able to, please support our Charity Partner, Blessings in a Backpack and your money will go directly to the Denver Metro Area program!

What Do We Do?
Blessings in a Backpack mobilizes communities, individuals, and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry.

Why Do We Do It?
There are more than 16.2 -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 currently feeding over 93,000 children in  nearly 1100 schools in 45 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.

How Much Does it Cost?
$100 feeds one child on the weekends for one 38-week school year through the Blessings in a Backpack program. The Results: Nourished Kids Ready to Learn.

Food is an essential building block, and in this case truly is a blessing, especially to a hungry child!
