  4. 4. About the Charity Blessings in a BackpackBlessings in a Backpack is the designated charity. This unique program isdesigned to feed elementary school children whose families qualify for thefederal free and reduced meal program, and may not have any or enough foodon the weekends. Better test scores, improved reading skills, positivebehavior, improved health and increased attendance have all been attributedto the success of this program. $80 feeds a child in the program for an entire school year. Following a donation, a school is chosen and a local grocer partners with the program to provide food for meals in the backpacks. Every Friday, students receive their backpacks with staples that require little to no preparation. They return with their backpacks on Monday ready to learn. Blessings in a Backpack has recently added many new schools in the South Florida Area to its program. With your support of this event, we aim to provide enough funding to add new schools from South Florida to the Blessings in a Backpack program and feed hundreds of children for years to come. Through Blessings in a Backpack’s weekend meals program, children benefit via: -- Increased access to vitamin-fortified food -- Increased attendance at school -- Higher test scores -- Reduced behavioral problems -- Increased parental participationLearn more at the Blessings in a Backpack website, www.BlessingsinaBackpack.org
