Backpacks for Kids: Serve

BFK logo.png

In Prince William County, there are many children that are food insecure. Food insecure is “the limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe food.” In Prince William County, over 19,000 elementary school children qualified for free or reduced-price school lunches. Although these children are provided meals during the week, some do not have access to food on the weekends. We want to ensure these children don’t have to worry where their next meal is coming from by providing children with weekend food bags.


While school is virtual we continue to provide weekend food bags at Coles Elementary School to families in need.

Coles Elementary (Hoadly Road) provides breakfast and lunch to children in the area. Immanuel has partnered with them to hand out additional food on Thursdays from 3pm- 5pm for families to have food on the weekend.  

Volunteers are needed to pack food bags, transport food to Coles Elementary School and distribute food on Thursdays. Please reach out to Melissa Byers if you are interested in serving.
