Roswell Packs Blessings in a Backpack
Blessings In A Backpack mobilizes communities, individuals, and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry. $100 feeds one child on the weekends for one 38-week school year through the Blessings in a Backpack program. Poor nutrition can result in a weaker immune system, increased hospitalization, lower IQ, shorter attention spans and lower academic achievement. Children are fed during the school week by federal government programs, but Blessings in A Backpack want to ensure they receive nutritional meals over the weekend.
Roswell Rotary donated $2500 to the cause. And, in January, a team of Roswell Rotarians and family members packed 100 backpacks filled with nutritional food that was delivered to North Fulton students the following Friday.
