How To Help
There are several ways you can help BIAB
Volunteering can unite people of all ages and backgrounds while building a stronger community and, in our case, feeding kids this weekend! Ina typical school year, Blessings in a Backpack-Rancho provides over 12,000 hunger-free weekends for kids in our local communities and it is because of people like you. Let us keep growing and continue to prevent weekend hunger! Join our team by becoming a volunteer.
We are always in need volunteers and this link will take you to see the opportunities.
Rickey and I are much closer to 70 years old than we are to 60, lol. It gets harder each year for us to do this by ourselves and we 100% appreciate your help. There are more schools we would like to add and with your help we will be able to.
Food Drives help Blessings in a Backpack in a HUGE way by reducing our food bill. We have a menu that gives you a good idea of the type of food we buy for our kids. We keep our cost under $3.50 per child and that is for the entire weekend.
A mini–Food Drive is a great way for your child to earn community service hours and help us out at the same time. Please click here for Food Drive info. We have several children who have donated to us via their birthday parties by asking their guests to bring food from our menu as their gifts.
Shopping at Amazon for BIAB is another option and we have a list of our menu items available at Amazon.com. You may shop in your jammies, from the comfort of your home and STILL help BIAB feed the kids!
Click the Buy Now button to the right and you will be directed to our list on Amazon. For Prime members, the shipping is free on many of the items. I have set our list up with our shipping address and the order will be delivered directly to BIAB!
