Henrico Schools

As a member of the McKinney-Vento team in Henrico County, I am honored to share how the Backpacks of Love program has been instrumental in supporting our efforts to ensure that no student goes hungry this school year. In a time marked by unprecedented challenges, the program has emerged as a beacon of hope, providing crucial assistance to students facing housing instability and food insecurity.


The Backpacks of Love program has played a pivotal role in addressing the nutritional needs of our students by providing them with nutritious and wholesome food items each week. From non-perishable staples to protein-rich snacks, the program has curated a diverse range of food options, tailored to meet the dietary preferences and cultural backgrounds of our diverse student population.


Beyond just providing meals, the Backpacks of Love program has fostered a sense of dignity and belonging among our students. By delivering food discreetly and with the utmost respect for privacy, the program has ensured that students can access nourishing meals without fear of stigma or judgment. This approach has been crucial in removing barriers to accessing food assistance and empowering students to focus on their education without the burden of hunger weighing them down.


In a year marked by uncertainty and upheaval, the Backpacks of Love program has been a source of stability and support for our McKinney-Vento students and their families. Its unwavering commitment to serving those in need has not only alleviated hunger but has also restored hope and resilience in our community. As a member of the McKinney-Vento team, I am deeply grateful for the invaluable partnership and support of the Backpacks of Love program, as together, we continue to make a meaningful difference in the lives of our students each and every day.
