God's Outreach | Madison County Backpack Program

Madison County Backpack Program

Did you know there are children who go to school hungry on Monday mornings because they didn't have food to eat over the weekend?

Around Madison County, you’ll find many teachers who can tell you about a student who came to school on Monday, not reluctant to start the school week but eager to get back to school after going through Friday evening, all day Saturday, and all day Sunday without a square meal—or knowledge of a source for their next meal.

Those children are the reason we started the BackPack Program.

The BackPack Program started in 2008 as one of God’s Outreach’s major initiatives to ensure that children in need have balanced, nutritious food they need to learn and grow. We currently serve 14 Madison County Schools for a total of 1,350 backpacks a month. The concept is simple: children at risk of weekend hunger receive a bag of food that is child-friendly, nutritious, nonperishable, and easy to prepare/eat. Each BackPack offers enough food that children can easily assemble into meals over the weekend when schools are unable to provide breakfasts or lunches.

By partnering with Community, school staff, and local school systems, the BackPacks are distributed to children in need through the school system—discreetly—each Friday afternoon or before a long holiday weekend.

The children of Madison County need your help! Your gift of $120 per year (or $10 per month) will help provide food for one year for one student. To give click "Donate" on our home page or by mail PO BOX 1226 Richmond, Ky 40476. If you would like to stop by our new location at 1512 East Main St. Richmond we would love to meet you! Our hours are Monday thru Wednesday 9-12.
