Blessings in a Backpack Royal Oak Steering Committee
Blessings In a Backpack is a “neighbor-helping-neighbor” program that is designed to help meet the nutritional needs of children and families.
Each week, volunteers, in cooperation with school officials, distribute backpacks filled with enough non-perishable food for the weekend (six meals) to “at-risk” students. These students are participants in the government subsidized free or reduced fee hot lunch program.
The goal of the Blessings in a Backpack program is to keep these students from going hungry on the weekends and remove barriers to academic success. We are affiliated with national office of Blessings in a Backpack http://blessingsinabackpack.org
