Donated resources are used to purchase, package, and discreetly distribute food to children for weekend nourishment.
Time, money, or food...
The choice is yours...
The children are all of ours!
In 2012, a young student was seen climbing into 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 energy to alleviate the problem. Food Backpack 4 Kids was born. It has grown ever since in both effectiveness & scope.
As of 2017, we are distributing weekend food supplies to over 80 students...quietly, effectively.
Florence and Mapleton ...
Our communities, Our families, Our children.
FB4K exists so that ...
"Together, no child will go hungry."
Feeding young bodies and minds is our passion
and singular mission statement.
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!

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.
