Who will feed the kids this weekend?
Kids should worry about being kids and not where their next meal is coming from. Sadly hundreds of our children right here in Rancho Cordova and Folsom have to wonder if that lunch they're eating on Friday is their last meal until they return to school on Monday. We are a nonprofit working to end the 60+ hours some children go without food.
The kids receive free breakfast and lunch every day of the school year but what about the weekends? That's where Blessings in a Backpack steps in. We send home 5 meals and 2 snacks, each Friday, to help children in households dealing with food shortage issues.
Normally, we send weekend food home for 330 children attending local elementary schools. These weekend food bags are packed at each of the schools but with Covid-19 we have a new normal.
Who will feed the kids when schools are closed?
We are hoping that you will choose to answer, “I will” to ensure these kids are fed during this emergency and when they return to school. As little as $4 provides a Blessings bag of food to a child facing food insecurity now and when kids return to school.
How will we feed the kids when schools are closed?
We accept donations on our secure website and that can be accessed by clicking here. There are also several businesses, churches and groups doing food drives for us which is a HUGE help to BIAB and cuts our food bill down drastically. We shop for the balance of the food that is needed to put the weekend food bags together. Sadly, it has been very difficult to buy food in the quantities required
We have weekend bags of food packed and ready to go. Normally, we send food to seven local elementary schools for 330 students to take home on Fridays to help carry them over the weekend. Our students receive free breakfast and lunch at school ensuring they have food each day.
Covid-19 has changed so many things and now the kids are homeschooled with the ability to pick up grab and go meals to help replace the normal breakfast and lunch they are given at school.
We have changed how we're doing business, also. We have locations that you can dirve through and pick up a weekend bag of food. You do NOT need to have your children with you or have their ID. There are no requirements
