What will happen on the weekend?
Backpack Blessings, a ministry of Love in Action, provides food on the weekends for elementary school children in the
Tri-cities community. Students eligible for the free or reduced meal program at school can participate in our program throughout the school year. Sacks of easy to prepare, kid-friendly foods are discretely distributed to students through the
school on Fridays, and students return to school on Monday ready to learn. Through dedicated volunteers, community partnerships, and linking local resources together, our program ensures that our school children have the nourishment needed
to learn and grow.
Love in Action provides help to our neighbors in need through programs and ministries focused on five main areas: food, shelter, health & dental, transportation, and household sustainability. Each ministry is made possible by donations of funding, volunteer hours, and other resources by our network of churches and the Tri-Cities Community.
Backpack Blessings is a community-led program funded through donations from individuals, churches, and businesses in the Tri-Cities. Donations of the following items are always needed and accepted at our warehouse facility at 1106 Fulton in Grand Haven:
