In Frederick, Md., the Blessings program has responded to the closing of schools statewide by pulling together enough food to last each of their 3,100 kids for five days; that’s 100,000 food items! The program accomplished this by mobilizing their community and utilizing their “Blizzard Bags” (typically reserved for snow days), emergency snack packs, and doubling up on their normally scheduled bags. On March 12, 2020, kids even went home with a fresh apple! A local partner, Dublin Roasters Coffee, has offered to serve as a distribution hub for future bags. Kids in Frederick are in good hands!
