Feeding hungry children one backpack at a time. Many children in Charlotte County do not have a stable source of food except the free or reduced breakfast and lunch provided by the schools. We bridge the gap by providing a backpack filled with nutritious food items to over 800 children every weekend. The cost to feed one child for the school year is $160.00. There are no administrative costs. All donations are used to purchase food and backpacks.

General needs: Feed hungry children
