Hunger doesn’t take the weekend off

National Volunteer Week

We celebrate our volunteers year-round, but this week – National Volunteer Week – I want to thank our volunteers for choosing the BackPack Weekend Food Program to share your time and service in helping others. This was especially evident during the COVID-19 crisis when you went above and beyond to help distribute food bags to students and families in the program. Because of you, we have been able to provide more than 1.5 million meals to students in grades K-12 since 2011. And because of you, we are delivering our promise to students that someone cares about their future. We could not do this without you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
