February is National Canned Food month and we are celebrating with an extra 782 pounds of canned and non-perishable food! That’s right. Several neighborhoods in Greensboro held food drives this month. Our coordinators in each neighborhood collected the donations and delivered over 6 car loads to us!

If you’ve ever volunteered with BackPack Beginnings, you know how important canned food is to our cause. For struggling families, canned foods provide a balanced meal with proteins, vegetables, and fruit. We have food pantries in 10 schools that we need to keep supplied every week. Every can helps!

As always, we are so thankful for our volunteers and supporters. If you are interested in holding a food drive in your neighborhood, please visit the Food Drive page on our website.
