 Imagine leaving school on Friday and not having another meal until returning to school on Monday. That’s reality for a growing number of hungry children. Backpacks of Love is committed to eliminating hunger in school-age boys and girls by providing nourishing food for their weekends. 

The Backpacks of Love is a ministry of the New Beginnings Community Church of Richmond Hill, and they strive to serve Bryan County so that no child worries about their next meal.
