Backpack Angel

Be a Backpack Angel!

Kids who are food insecure face additional hardship over the weekends. Resurrection’s Backpacks for Hunger Ministry helps alleviate this issue by providing nutritious, child-friendly food to over 1,800 students a week. Bags of weekend food go to students at Phillips, Rogers, Troost and Wheatley Elementary in KCMO, Quindaro and Welborn in KCK and Ridgeview Elementary in Olathe.

Students who participate in the program receive a bag with items such as cereal, shelf stable milk, fruit cups, soup or pasta and other non-perishable food that is easily prepared. Monthly food costs will range depending on content, but averages approximately $25 per student. You can provide food for a student for a year for $225, or $25/month by dropping a check in the collection plate with "Backpacks for Hunger" noted in the memo line or give online using the link below.

Serve at one of our Pre-K Partners

Our partner school preschools serve families, including immigrant and refugee families, with educational childcare and family support services. Classroom activities provide age-appropriate activities to build children's social-emotional, physical, language, and cognitive skills.

In-school serving opportunities are available assisting teachers or students. Volunteers can serve during morning hours on a regular basis or help out from time to time as needed. Those with flexible schedules are especially needed. For more information on training requirements contact Linda Anderson at
