Net proceeds will be donated to the Frederick chapter of Blessings in a Backpack.  The local chapter works in partnership with the national Blessings in a Backpack organization to provide weekend food to children who depend on the federal Free And Reduce-Price Meal program as their primary source of nutrition. The food distribution effort from Blessings In A Backpack is especially critical during this year's COVID-19 crisis, so our support is more important than ever.
