Every weekend, children go hungry. In Bellevue.
For too many Bellevue school kids, the only meals they get are at school. On the weekends, they don’t have enough to eat. When children are hungry, everything else is harder, including learning.
The Backpack Meals for Kids program is working to fill that gap.
Backpack Meals for Kids provides free, easy-to-make meals each Friday so they have food to eat over the weekend. Backpacks are also provided free to children who need them when they join the program.
Because children shouldn’t go hungry on the weekends.
MCRC(Muslim community resource center) has been partnering with Backpack Meals for Kids since this program started. For 2017, MCRC will be helping Back Meals for Kids to provide meals for needy students for the next 6 months till the end of the school year June-2017
