Micah’s Backpack addresses children’s hunger issues by partnering with 9 local schools to provide direct assistance to students who qualify for  free meals at school. Every weekend participating students receive a backpack filled with plenty of  food for the weekend. The backpacks include two dinners, two lunches, two breakfasts, snacks, juices, and milks. Weekly, nearly 80 volunteers from various academic, civic, collegiate, corporate, and interfaith groups work together building communitywhile packing the backpacks.   On Fridays, the partner schools distribute the backpacks to the 280 students who participate.  Micah's Backpack delivers weekend meals during the school year and expanded in 2013 to deliver in the summer with the help of the Carolyn Pearsall Community Impact Grant from the Community Foundation.
