Photo of kids holding up their bags of food Help Us Feed Kids in Seminole County More than 7,300 students in Seminole County Elementary schools are at risk of going hungry on the weekends without our program. Donate Now Photo of kids holding up their bags of food For millions of American Children, School = Food COVID-19 school closures have taught us that school is more than reading, writing, and arithmetic. It's a place where kids feel safe and secure and have access to meals during the week. Help ensure kids have food on the weekends too Photo of smiling kids Who Will Feed Kids in Orlando At Blessings in a Backpack we often ask, "Who will feed the kids this weekend?" But the COVID-19 emergency has caused us to expand our programs from feeding kids on the weekends, to now serving kids while schools are closed. Our Response to COVID-19 When Schools Are Closed?
