FoodForDays™: A Backpack Meals Ministry

Food For Days began in September 2010 when Mr. John Saunders, a Pastor, learned that "local kids were returning to school on Monday with bellyaches because they had not eaten since Friday". By 2012, the backpack meals ministry grew to include eight church partners, over a dozen schools across two districts with local business support together providing nearly 250 student backpack meals each week. In 2012, the ministry also obtained the 501c3 nonprofit designation as "Food for Days: A Backpack Meals Ministry". Today, Food For Days provides food for up to 400+ needy kids in 14 local schools.
