Who We Are

Micah’s Backpack addresses food insecurity for youth in 9 local schools

Micah's BackpackBy partnering with 9 Blacksburg schools, Micah’s Backpack provides direct food assistance for children from low-income families. Every Friday during the school year, the identified students receive a backpack filled with two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners, snacks, juice and milk boxes, and an educational piece. On Thursday evenings up to 100 volunteers from various academic, civic, and interfaith groups volunteer together with staff building community while packing the backpacks. On Friday mornings volunteers deliver the bags and the partner schools distribute to the students. Currently, 280 children in Blacksburg schools receive a gift of healthy food during the academic year and approximately 140 during the summer school break.  By feeding this vulnerable population we demonstrate that their community cares about them.
