Providing meals for hungry students
For A Brighter Future
Bags of Hope was founded in January 2016
and has been providing backpacks full of non-perishable food to students in the Bolingbrook, Joliet, Lockport, Minooka, Plainfield, and Romeoville communities ever since.
Located in Plainfield, Illinois, BoH hosts scores of volunteers as well as area civic organizations. In addition, BoH partners with schools in multiple districts throughout the area.
Making An Impact
Bags of Hope is a non-profit organization with a mission to make sure each student enters school ready to learn. This means having breakfast!
Working directly with social workers from schools in Lockport and Plainfield, Bags of Hope provides backpacks of food for students to take home.
With the help of YOU, members of our community, we were able to donate not only breakfast food, but food that children and their families can enjoy throughout the day!
