Most of his classmates can’t wait for Friday afternoon, but not Tyler. Instead of dreaming up his own two days’ worth of fun, he’s wondering if there will be enough to eat at home.
No child should worry about when their next meal will be, yet here in Northeast Louisiana, 1 out of every 4 children is facing hunger. But you can help feed kids right now with your gift to the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana.
Each Friday through our BackPack Program, bags of nutritious and easy-to-prepare food are distributed to schools across our community so kids like Tyler have enough to eat through the weekend.
Last year, with the help of friends like you, we were able to provide 26,400 BackPacks to children in need!
Your compassion today will provide so much more than just food… you’ll also provide hope.
With your support today, kids like Tyler can spend their weekends playing and growing – instead of worried and hungry.
P.S. No child should ever have to worry about not having enough food. Please give today.
