In Miami Dade County, 248,264 children receive free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program and the National School Breakfast Program. For many of these children, school meals may be the only meals they eat. What happens when they go home over the weekend?
Caring For Miami’s Backpack Program provides children in need with bags of nutritious food they can take home and easily prepare on their own.
At Caring For Miami we are continually developing new strategies to meet the needs of children in our community.
Your monthly gift of $25 will give your sponsored child access to life-changing benefits. By providing kids with the nutrients they need when they’re away from school, they show up on Monday morning healthy and ready to learn.
As a sponsor, you’ll be able to see your impact firsthand through hand written letters and quarterly updates. You’ll see how much you’re helping a child when they need it most.
