Join ASCM CONNECT in giving back!

There are more than 13.1 million children in this country who are at risk of hunger. The consequences of hunger are much more than a growling stomach. Poor nutrition can result in a weaker immune system, increased hospitalization, lower IQ, shorter attention spans, and lower academic achievement.

Blessings in a Backpack is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that mobilizes communities, individuals, and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry. Blessings in a Backpack is currently feeding over 87,300 children in nearly 1,092 schools in 45 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.

For the fourth year in a row, volunteers at ASCM CONNECT will assemble backpacks of nutritious food that will be given to local elementary school students in need.

Plan to join us in the Expo Hall on Sunday, September 13th at 10:45 AM to be a part of this worthwhile effort to give back to the people of New Orleans.
