To address a growing need for nutritious food for schoolage students, Bread of Life distributes backpacks filled with food to Everett students on a regular basis each month. Bread of Life works with school principals and guidance counselors who identify students struggling with poverty and food insecurity and distribute the backpacks. Backpack items include snacks, juice boxes, crackers, peanut butter, cereal, milk boxes, noodle bowls and other nonperishable food items. Bread of Life also provides blankets, gloves, hats, socks, hand warmers, towels, toothbrushes and other supplies as needed. With the support of the Foundation Trust, more than 5,000 backpacks have been distributed to Everett students to date. “It’s disturbing to think about the financial strain some parents are under week after week to pay bills and make sure their kids are fed; the nutrition backpacks put good nutrition into the hands of the kids at school and help the rest of the family at home,” said Bread of Life Executive Director Gabriella Snyder Stelmack. “We are extremely grateful that The Foundation Trust is providing the challenge grant to grow this program.” “We started this partnership with Bread of Life before the pandemic started, and unfortunately the need for the backpacks has grown considerably since that time. Bread of Life has risen to the challenge, and we are honored to be a small part of their tremendous work addressing food insecurity in our communities,” said Foundation COVID surge forces cancellation of MLK Breakfast A s a result of the ongoing surge in COVID-19 cases, Zion Church Ministries announced that the 17th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Breakfast, scheduled for Monday, January 17, has been cancelled.
