Feeding the Children

Blessings in a Backpack, Frederick provides backpacks of non-perishable, kid-friendly food to almost 3,000 children in 21 local schools each weekend, over school breaks, and during weather emergency closings throughout the school year. Many of the children they feed depend on school meals as their primary source of nutrition Monday-Friday, so what do they do on the weekends? That’s where BIAB steps in. These kids are often at risk of going hungry for 65 hours as there are 65 hours from lunch in school on Friday until breakfast Monday morning. It costs only $100 to feed a single child each weekend for an entire school year and all money raised is used to feed our local children. The Rotary Club of Frederick’s Service Partnership Grant will feed 35 students for an entire school year.
