Nibbles Backpack Program

 

According to Feeding America, 1 in 6 children may not know where they will get their next meal. For the nearly 13 million kids in the U.S. facing hunger, getting the energy they need to learn and grow can be a day-in, day-out challenge. Children facing hunger may struggle in school — and beyond. They are more likely to repeat a grade in school, experience developmental impairments in language and motor skills, and have more social and behavior problems. Many children from low-income households struggle with hunger over the weekend.  The goal of the Backpack Program is to address child hunger by providing low-income, food insecure children with nutritious and easy-to-prepare food items for the weekend when school feeding programs do not operate and other food resources are often not readily available.
