Private Groups Bring Blessings in Backpacks

They were named the 2012 Charity of the Year...and it's a great idea that grows.  It's called, Blessings in a Backpack.

"Blessings in a Backpack provides elementary schoolchildren who are on the federal Free and Reduced Price Meal Program with a backpack of food to take home for 38 weekends during the school year. Backpack food includes easy-to-prepare, ready-to-eat foods, like granola bars, juice boxes, mac and cheese, and oatmeal," the website explains.
