A Message From Emily Diaz

I have the honor of helping run the BackPack Program at Foodlink. This program helps provide nutritious food to children in need for weekends and long holidays. Good nutrition is vital to a child's success in school. Help me raise funds to feed a child for an entire school year!

Foodlink Backpack Program Sponsorship

About This Campaign

No child should have to go to school hungry. Help us provide food to a classroom full of students for an entire year!

Good nutrition is critical to good health and success at school. Children who don’t get enough to eat often have:
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Lower Math and English scores
  • Difficulty interacting with peers
  • Trouble finishing tests in time
  • Lower graduation rates

Tens of thousands of children in our 10-county service area receive free or reduced-price lunch at school. But when school is closed during weekends and holidays, many of those children go hungry. The BackPack Program from Foodlink provides children in need with bags of nutritious food they can discreetly take home and easily prepare on their own. The bags typically weigh about five pounds and contain items from all the food groups (according to MyPlate.gov).

In a typical year, the BackPack Program serves more than 3,000 children at more than 80 schools within Foodlink’s 10-county service area.

Thank you for partnering with Foodlink to empower students and build a healthier community!
