weekend backpack program

Thank you for your interest and help in providing nutritious food to 306 food insecure children in our community. Who, without your donation, may not otherwise be eating throughout the weekend. Your generosity touches the lives of each individual child as well as their family.

The mission of the Weekend Backpack Program is to assist in combating food insecurity for children living in Springfield, Virginia, by providing a gallon-sized Ziploc bag filled with nutritious, shelf-stable foods.

We hold packing nights at Messiah Church on the second Wednesday of each month. Want to help but cannot come to a packing night? Sign your group up to pack or deliver bags to schools.
