more than 9 million KIDS in America are food insecure.
That's ONE in EIGHT kids who eat meals at school during the week but are without affordable, healthy food on Saturday and Sunday. The consequences are much more than a growling stomach. Hunger can cause many physical health problems, shorten a child's attention span, lower their IQ, and keep them from making good grades.
with your help, Blessings in a backpack will make a huge impact this school year.
The impact of Blessings in a Backpack goes beyond easing hunger pangs. At such a young age, food insecurity can impact a child's health, social development, cognitive growth, and general well-being.
