Backpack Coalition is a program of the Loudoun Education Foundation that provides weekend meals to food-insecure students and their families. We support schools’ existing weekend meal programs or create and sustain meal programs at schools that do not otherwise have one. Our goal is to ensure that all students are fed so they can focus on their education.

Your Generosity at Work: Your donation supports this critical program which purchases food from Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.

$5 – Provides one weekend meal bag

$25 – Provides one month of weekend meal bags

$175 – Provides one school year of weekend meal bags
