Blessings in a Backpack’s Livonia chapter currently packs bags of food for 500+ children who are on the free and reduced lunch program to take home on the weekends. Currently BIAB Livonia is in 10 schools (Webster, Kennedy, Cleveland, Cooper, Hayes, Grant, Garfield, Johnson, Rosedale, and Randolph.) with expansion plans to eventually get into all of the Livonia schools all the way up to high schools.
In addition, they are always looking for volunteers, and as the number of children they help grows they will rely more and more upon volunteers to help pack the backpacks each week.
For the month of September, all of your food donations as well as monetary donations will go to support Blessings in a Backpack. Items needed the most include:
Canned Beef Ravioli
Soups: Chicken and Rice, Beef Vegetable, Tomato, Chicken, Chicken Noodle
