Hunger has both short- and long-term negative effects on children’s health and ability to succeed in school. Blessings (https://www.blessingsinabackpack.org/) in partnership with LindaBen Foundation will provide food on the weekends to children at times when other resources are not available such as weekends. Blessings & LindaBen relies on the schools we partner with to identify students who qualify for the school's free and reduced-price meal program. As the only national organization solely dedicated to closing the weekend hunger gap for food insecure kids, Blessings in a Backpack provided over 3 million hunger- free weekends for more than 87,000 kids across 45 states and Washington D.C. throughout the 2019-2020 school year.
