Micah’s Backpack: Healthy Meals for Healthy Children

Many families struggle to eat healthy meals and snacks every day. Micah’s Backpack is a free ministry that helps food-insecure children eat more healthy meals and snacks through a partnership with their elementary school and a local church or organization. First Christian Church has partnered with Micah’s Backpack for 6 years and is currently sponsoring 15 backpacks that go to two local schools.

Each Friday afternoon, identified elementary school children receive a backpack or plastic bag of healthy food and snacks. They include 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, fruit, snacks, and often shelf stable milk and juice. 

Individual serving sizes are needed. No glass containers, please.

Our most needed items at this time:



Macaroni and Cheese (microwaveable)

Chicken noodle/Vegetable beef soup (10.5oz)

Canned Vegetables (8oz)

Pudding cups (non-refrigerated)

If you would prefer to make a monetary donation, checks can be made out to First Christian Church (memo: Micah’s Backpack)
