Blessings in a Backpack Who Will Feed the Kids this Weekend?

DRI and Blessings in a Backpack Partnership

During the 2023 Annual Meeting, DRI announced its two-year partnership with Blessings in a Backpack, a national organization dedicated to ensuring that no child goes hungry on the weekends. Over the course of the two-year partnership, the DRI Foundation has committed to supporting 10 packing events a year, providing weekend meals to thousands of children in need. These events will be hosted during key DRI events, including the Annual Meeting and several seminars. DRI believes that, through this partnership, it can make a meaningful difference in the lives of children facing food insecurity and contribute positively to the communities we serve. Together with Blessings in a Backpack, DRI is committed to ensuring a brighter, more nourished future for America's youth.
