Louisville Chapter

The Louisville Chapter

In 2018–2019, Blessings in a Backpack provided more than 190,000 hunger-free weekends to JCPS elementary school students who are facing food insecurity.

Almost 5,000 children receive Blessings in a Backpack every Friday, but sadly, approximately 60,000 children in Jefferson County qualify for our program. Our goal is to increase the number of children being fed by 500 this school year.

Who will feed the kids this weekend?

Together, we will!

Mayor Greg Fisher and Miss Puerto Rico joined the kids at Hawthorne Elementary School on National Blessings in a Backpack Day to pack bags of weekend food.
