Because of the impacts of COVID-19, it is projected that 18 million kids will begin school this fall as food-insecure. That means that they won't know where their next meal will come from. These kids rely on the food that their schools provide, leaving a 65-hour gap over the weekend. Blessings in a Backpack fills the weekend nutrition gap, ensuring that kids also have food to eat on Saturday and Sunday. Blessings' service is more crucial now than ever. 

Who will feed the kids this weekend?

Crossroad Lutheran Church is dedicated to eliminating hunger issues in Clay County. One of the ways we are doing this is to host a Virtual Packing Event to safely provide food to the children at Swimming Pen Creek Elementary School. By supporting this event, we will raise money that will help Blessings in a Backpack continue to feed these food-insecure children right here in our own backyard. 

We hope you will join us!
