Engaging our community in solving youth hunger

Feeding Our Communities Partners (FOCP) is a nonprofit organization focused on solving local hunger in Blue Earth, Nicollet and Fairbault counties. Through our first initiative, the BackPack Food Program, we discreetly provide elementary students with packs of food to be consumed on weekends and school breaks.

To further our reach and impact, FOCP launched our second initiative, Power Pack, in 2017. Power Pack meets the unique hunger needs of the middle school population by discreetly providing food packs on weekends and school breaks, as well as snacks that students can access during the weekdays on an as-needed basis.

Both of these programs have met huge success and so we launched our third initiative, the Summer Pack Program, in 2019. Summer Packs provide nutritious food options for students during the summer months so our students can have fun in the sun without worrying where their next meal will come from.

All of these initiatives focus on providing youth with adequate nutrition as fuel for ultimate performance in school, activities and life. We currently serve over 1050 students at 22 elementary schools and 7 middle schools in 5 school districts.

"BackPack Food makes feeding my family easier while I attend school full time and funds become very tight. I am so thankful for this program!"        --Parent of student

The BackPack Food Program adds new schools in the area responsibly and systematically to ensure that once they are added to our roster, we are able to maintain our commitment to them.
