Do you know where your next meal will come from?

The City of Syracuse continues to struggle with having one of the nation’s highest poverty rates, with almost a third of city residents living below the poverty line. Syracuse children continue to suffer in the form of childhood hunger, due to living in food deserts and lacking access to healthful and nutritious meals. We all recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic has tested all of us having left many kids food-insecure. However, an organization is in place to intercede. Blessings in a Backpack is a nonprofit organization established to alleviate the hunger experienced by school-aged children when they go home for the weekend.

This initiative will help raise money to assist with providing food to children within the Syracuse City School District on weekends who may otherwise go hungry.

If you are in a position to financially help Blessings in a Backpack feed a rapidly growing number of children in need of food within the Syracuse City School District, we would love to have you join us! Spreading the word about this initiative is impactful as well.

Will you help feed kids within the Syracuse community?
