Blessings in a Backpack

Blessings in a Backpack - Blessings in a Backpack ensures that Floyd County is a “hunger-free zone”. It is accomplished in partnership with Blessings in a Backpack, the national program designed to feed elementary school age children whose families may not have enough food on the weekends. During the week, children that receive federal free or reduced lunch depend on meals provided by the school. Sometimes, the meals at school are the only ones they get. We make sure they are getting nutritious meals over the weekend, too. This local volunteer team raises funds to help cover their food expense, partners with Sysco Foods in Louisville to purchase their food for delivery to the schools, and packs the backpacks. Every Friday, students receive their backpacks with staples that require little to no preparation. They return on Monday, ready to learn.
