Returning to school means returning to food for many northland students

Many Northland students are grateful to return to school

Over 2,000 Northland elementary-aged children will soon be receiving their BackSnack on Fridays. For many, this will be the bulk of food they will consume during the weekend.  Many partners make this possible:

  • Harvesters with the beautiful BackSnack

  • funders who partner with us to support northland needs

  • volunteers who help pack the food

  • others who create events for our benefit

Together we truly are “feeding our future”. Read on for some recent and future happenings.


Thanks to our friends with Nerdy Massage! Nearly 60 massages booked so far – that’s a lot of relaxed people who are also helping feed some kids…….

This lovely gal added a charitable donation
option at her recent birthday party. Proof
that you don’t have to be an adult to help
others! Great job Mallory!!
