Blessings in a Backpack Helps End Hunger

The Tucson branch of a nationwide organization is dedicated to helping solve childhood hunger, and they need your help!

Approximately 16.2 million children in the United States suffer from hunger, an issue that can have a significant impact on their childhoods and their future. Poor nutrition and lack of access to healthy food can lead to low academic concentration and performance, weakened immune systems and health, and increase hospitalization.

In an effort to make a difference in the lives of hungry children, Blessings in a Backpack strives to encourage positive change. Their motto is “Feeding the Future of America,” and the organization provides free meals to elementary-aged children from low-income families throughout the country.

Join the Tucson branch in it’s efforts to make a difference in the lives of hungry, low-income children and students throughout Southern Arizona. For more information on “adopting” a Tucson-area child to support through monetary donations, please visit the official website.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
