No child should ever go hungry. But childhood hunger exists in our community, and the need continues to grow.
Forty-three percent of the people Harvesters serves are children—more than 25,000 kids every week. Harvesters’ BackSnack program partners with schools and community groups to send hungry kids home with backpacks full of nutritious food for the weekend.
A 12-year-old student at Leesville Elementary School in Clinton, Mo., receives food every Friday.
“Getting my backpack makes me feel cared for. Thank you for the food.”
