According to Feeding America, 21.1% of children in Duval County are food insecure. That's 1 in 5.
At Micah’s Backpack, Jacksonville, our mission is to feed food-insecure children on the weekend. The children we serve are identified by teachers and counselors as regularly coming to school hungry. For many of the children we support, lunch on Friday is the last meal they have until school breakfast on Monday morning. We pack food every Thursday and deliver it to schools on Friday to be sent home with the students we serve.
Join us on February 8th anytime between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. and help make a difference for our kids. All the food we provide to students is purchased locally with donations from people like you. Every dollar donated goes directly to feeding hungry children.
