Blessings in a Backpack

Food Drive




Welcome to a new year and new way to help Blessings in a Backpack! For the last 22 months, Johns Creek Books and Gifts and you,  our loyal customers,  have partenered with Blessings in a Backpack to help get bags of food to families in our community at risk for hunger. In this new year we are changing our approach to better help BIAB reach their goal of sending food bags home in childrens' backpacks each week. 


There are two ways you can help us provide food for the 180 children BIAB serves every week. You can make a difference!

You can help by:

  • Purchasing any of the following food items and dropping them off at the store for delivery

  • Package your own food bag by packing 8 to 10 items from the list below in a plastic grocery bag and drop off to Johns Creek Books and Gifts for delivery to BIAB

*ALL ITEMS SHOULD BE SMALL SIZED (ex. don't put in a full sized box of mac and cheese.The food bags go in childrens' backpacks)

  • Proteins:

  • chicken/tuna pouches

  • vienna sausages

  • chicken noodle soup cups or puches

  • beef/turkey jerky packages

  • Fruits:

  • fruit cups

  • applesauce

  • fruit squeeze pouches

  • raisins/dried fruit

  • Vegetables

  • veggie cups (corn, greenbeens, etc)

  • veggie squeeze pouches

  • Snacks

  • cheese crackers

  • goldfish

  • veggie straws

  • mac and cheese cups

  • Breakfast

  • granola bars

  • cereal bars

  • mini cereal boxes

  • oatmeal cups or pouches
