Too Many Empty Bellies Right Here in Frederick...As Program Coordinator for Blessings in a Backpack, I've seen first-hand the positive impact our program has on the lives of the 2,600 local children we currently feed each weekend.  BIAB provides backpacks of non-perishable, kid-friendly food to children who might otherwise go hungry when school meals are unavailable. These children often depend on school meals as their primary source of nutrition Monday through Friday, but "What do they do on the weekends?"  Many are at risk of going hungry for 65 hours... from lunch in school on Friday until school breakfast Monday morning... 65 hours without enough food to ensure proper nutrition for healthy growth and development.  We're proud of what we've accomplished so far, but sadly there are thousands more children who need our help.  We currently have hundreds on our waiting list and more schools eager to join BIAB. It costs only $100 to feed a single child for an entire school year. Together, we can help end childhood hunger right here at home.

Won’t you help feed the kids this weekend, next weekend, and every weekend during the upcoming school year?  The more money we raise, the more children we can feed. Please give what you can and sponsor as many children as you're able.
