Student Supplemental Food Program
aka "Blessing Bags" 

When a school becomes a "Blessings" school, every child receives a bag full of nutritious food in their bag before they leave the classroom on Friday. 

There is no sign up, no "have" and "have not" lines to approve who receives a Blessing Bag. Every student is fed to ensure the dignity of every child. 

Menus are carefully created and approved by a nutritionist, but we always keep in mind that we are serving the most vulnerable of children who need to be able to consume the food regardless of: 

-The presence of a willing/able adult in the household. 

-Working utilities in the home. 

-Access to functioning appliances. 

Over 98,000 Blessings Bags are distributed in Fort Wayne Community Schools on an annual basis, feeding over 2600 children every weekend.

"Believe Bags" 

The stigma of food insecurity can be as devastating as the direct effects of hunger itself.  

As mental, behavioral, and self-esteem issues weigh heavily on children battling food insecurity, we want to ensure that we are feeding the soul as well as the tummy.

"Believe Bags" are distributed on a quarterly basis in addition to our Blessings Bags in every school our program is implemented in. These gift bags include a gift based upon need, theme, or season, a treat, and a positive message reminding the child receiving it that we believe in their worth, their ability, and their dreams.
