The first inaugural year of Blessing in a Back of the Santa Maria Valley began in January of 2020. Because of you, we were able changed the lives of so many kids in our community. 


Here are some of the things that we accomplished with your support: 


We fed 2,833 kids 

We provided 17,000 meals 

We supported 5 local organizations


This year was particularly challenging because schools closed down because of the COVID-19 pandemic. With your help, we arranged for a way to feed kids while they weren’t in school. We were so happy to provide kids a sense of normalcy during those times. 


We’re excited to be a part of the Blessings in a Backpack family. It was an excellent year for our organization, and you can read more about what we accomplished here
