Local Stories

Blessings in a Backpack’s Chicago Associate Board Hosts 4th Annual Race to Feed Chicago

After a three-year pause during the height of the pandemic, Blessings in a Backpack’s Chicago Associates Board brought its ‘Race to Feed Chicago’ event back in full force to pack 1,800 bags of food.

Feeding Kids in Your Own Backyard

Children shouldn’t spend the summer worrying about going hungry; they should be out playing in the sun. This May, get involved and give back to help feed kids who might otherwise go hungry.

2022 National Volunteer Week

During National Volunteer Week, Blessings in a Backpack is celebrating its volunteers!
We want to express our appreciation for the impact they make on children’s lives.


We would like to give many thanks to our Chicago Chapter Lead Partners listed below, without which this program would not be possible.
