Blessings in a Backpack-UTICA is a “neighbor-helping-neighbor” program that is designed to help bridge the gap of the nutritional needs of children from the Utica School District. In the Utica Schools 8,500 children or 30% of the student population are eligible for this program. These children are our neighbors. Each week, we will distribute backpacks filled with enough non-perishable food for the weekend to students that qualify on the Federal Free and Reduced Fee Lunch program. The goal of Blessings in a Backpack is to keep these students from going hungry on the weekends and remove barriers to academic success.
If you would like to come help with packing food into backpacks during the school year, follow this up and sign up for an open date by clicking here.
