Hillary Duff Visits Columbia For Blessings In A Backpack Program
Looks like the Duffmeister is rolling up those sleeves and getting involved!
Last week Hillary traveled to Columbia to distribute 3,000 knapsacks of food to poor children in a school district south of the capital city as part of the Blessings in a Backpack program.
The project was started by Duff and USA Harvest founder Stan Curtis to help feed needy families by giving students backpacks of food every Friday to take home and share with their families over the weekend.
Duff has been involved in the project for almost four years and was thankful for the “amazing invitation” to bring the program to Colombia. She says:
“We’ve been working for four years feeding children over the weekends. They invited us to come here, and we got our first school in Bogota.”
The program serves 106 schools and 26,000 children in the U.S. and Canada. To learn more, visit BlessingsInABackpack.com.
