CBS TAMPA BAY and businesses across the Bay area are partnering with Blessings in a Backpack to help feed the Future of America.
About Blessings in a Backpack:
Blessings in a Backpack, People Magazines Charity of 2012, is a results-oriented program that is designed to feed elementary school children whose families qualify for the federally funded National School Lunch Program and have little or no food on the weekends. Better test scores, improved reading skills, positive behavior, improved health and increased attendance have all been attributed to the success of this program. Just $80 feeds one American school child in our program for an entire 38-week school year. Blessings in a Backpack is currently feeding nearly 60,000 children in 544 schools across 42 U.S. states. (see all at blessingsinabackpack.org/programlocations).
We are Feeding the Future of America® – one school at a time.
As we strive to raise $24,000, we thank the following businesses for their participation.
