Blessings in a Backpack Beginning to Fuel up Our Community
- Barb Hamlin, Hichborn Middle School
- Access to Healthy Foods
Fuel up to Play 60 is working to score a touchdown and make Hichborn Middle School students the winners by spreading the word about Blessings in a Backpack. Program Advisor Katie Glidden researched, gained administrative permission, and created contacts with private sponsors to connect to the local food cupboard and a statewide distributor of food to area food cupboards. Students have made posters and will encourage their classmates to make the winning catch of a backpack of food to take home before April vacation. With this first touchdown we are hoping to bless students to more and more passes in the future so no one is home hungry.
