Every week, volunteers meet to prepare and fill the backpacks for distribution to the elementary schools.

Weekly, backpacks are delivered to the schools and distributed by volunteers, students and teachers to thankful children.

We supply and stock a variety of pantries with several Middle and High Schools, containing not only food but also hygiene products.

The best way to donate is to sponsor a child, a grade or an entire school for ongoing support.

While one-time and in-kind donations greatly help, ongoing commitment allows us to focus on the primary goal of getting backpacks to children every week.

With your donation, we will send you a thank you and receipt for your tax-deductible gift.

Our organization is 100% volunteer, with no administrative costs. Everything goes to help the hungry children of Charlotte County.
