Get Involved

For a lot of kids, food is their most important school supply. Because when kids have enough food, they do better in school.

The Blessings in a Backpack Louisville Chapter works to ensure local kids have full bellies over the weekend by sending them home on Fridays with backpacks full of satisfying and nutritional food. There are many ways for you to get involved:

Volunteer Opportunities

Fundraising Opportunities

Employee Engagement Opportunities

Sometimes the most important thing in a child’s backpack isn’t school supplies. It’s food. Learn how LG&E is partnering with Blessings in a Backpack’s Louisville Chapter to provide hunger-free weekends for kids at Stuart Academy.
