Backpack Angel 2019-2020

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. You can provide food for a student for a year for $210, or $17.50/month by dropping a check in the collection plate with "Backpacks for Hunger" noted in the memo line or contact Roberta Lyle at roberta.lyle@cor.org or 913-544-0254 to make arrangements to donate.
