Hunger Doesn't Take the Weekend Off
The mission of Weekend Backpacks is to improve the lives of students affected by food insecurity in Baltimore. We currently serve 40 different schools totaling over 1200 bags of food weekly, or 21,600 individual meals. Our school partners tell us that the children are excited about receiving the bags, talk about the meals and are grateful for the consistent delivery of the program. Our school partners are instrumental in helping us reach the children and families in need of this resource and we are always receiving requests for our program from new schools. Your donation will help us meet the growing need in the community.
