My good friend Barbara replied to my email about US CHILDREN going hungry with this helpful info:
“Hugh, there is an organization that is doing just that, giving kids food to eat over the weekend when they are not in school. It’s called Blessings In A Backpack and these packs are filled with ready to eat food that a child could fix herself. They include things like granola bars, peanut butter, tuna, crackers, mac and cheese, cereal and juice boxes.
“You can find out more about Blessings In A Backpack and they can tell you about bringing a Blessings program to local schools. Besides, I like the name. -Barbara”
