Food Backpack 4 Kids

Join Us

1. Students in Need

Hunger and school are a horrible blend


in 2012, after witnessing a young student groveling in a trash dumpster for food, the plight of many students in Florence and Mapleton was uncovered.

Concerned members of these communities banded together to volunteer time and effort to alleviate the problem. Food Backpack 4 Kids was born. It has grown ever since in both scope and effectiveness.

​In 2017, we are distributing weekend food supplies to over 80 students!

Donated resources and food are organized, packaged, and discreetly & anonymously distributed to children in need.

Please make your contribution now.

Time, money, or food... 

The choice is yours...

The children are all of ours!

Our Mission

Wednesday Mornings

830am. It begins


Volunteers assemble to package a delicious assortment of food in grocery bags. A small team delivers the bags to our school representatives in charge of distribution. The packages are discreetly distributed to the students in need.

2. Food

Distributed without charge by an all volunteer staff


  • Students affected by hunger are identified by teachers and staff
  • Food is distributed discreetly every week
  • The student's need for nutritious food last through the weekend
  • School and studies are no longer a burden
  • Cheerful givers...our team's most important piece.
  • Generous Providers...our saints
  • Grateful students...our clients
  • Your donations ... a community blessing

Hunger isn't seasonal, which is why our year-round food drive & distribution gets so much attention. Devote a morning to help stock our pantry or fill backpacks. See first-hand how this is done. Hearts, time, and love. Feeding children together. Your neighbors, your friends, your community. This is good stuff!

3. Children...

Now they are well fed. 

Now they are anxious and able to concentrate & learn!
