Millions of low-income children in the United States rely on food support from the National School Lunch Program. But when school is not in session, children living in food-insecure households are at risk of going without the nutritious food they need.

Feeding America's BackPack Program was developed to address this need. Currently, there are nearly 5,000 BackPack Programs around the country, serving more than 230,000 children each year. Backpacks, filled with child-friendly, vitamin fortified and nonperishable food, are discreetly distributed to children to take home on weekends or before holiday vacations.

You can help! $25 helps Feeding America establish and strengthen BackPack Programs around the country, ensuring that children do not have to go to bed hungry or suffer the ill health created by poor nutrition.


Report from the Field

In 2012, Feeding America released a study showing that more than 16 million children nationwide now deal with the potential of hunger. Children are "food insecure" in every county in the United States, and, in more than 1,000 counties, more than one in four children are at risk of hunger.


Feeding America provides low-income individuals and families with the fuel to survive and even thrive. As the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity, they serve the entire United States with more than 200 member food banks supporting 61,000 agencies that address hunger in all of its forms.
