Just under 1 in 6 Floyd County children face food insecurity. When school dismisses on Friday, 30% of NAFCS pre-k through 6th grade students would leave their classroom unsure of whether they will have enough to eat until school starts again next Monday, if not for the work of Blessings in a Backpack Floyd County.
Through donations from local individuals and companies, Blessings in a Backpack Floyd County is able to ensure that students in need don’t go hungry over the weekend and can return to school ready to learn.
For as little as $3.25 per weekend, or $130 a school year,
you can be a Blessing to a hungry child.
