Activity Description

SERVE at Home is a way for your family to spread kindness and help our community on your own, anytime, anywhere! We want to keep Houston volunteering all week long! Let's make food focus packs for Bayou City Blessings to distribute to its clients!


For this activity, you will work with your family at home to assemble food focus packs for Bayou City Blessings in a Backpack. BCB distributes food to over 2,300 children in HISD and SBISD every Friday of the school year, making Bayou City Blessings one of the largest Blessings in a Backpack chapters in the nation.


Activity Directions

In a gallon-sized ziploc bag (freezer bags preferred), pack the following items:

  • Fruit snacks (Individually packaged)
  • One or two of the following snacks:
    • Ramen
    • Snack size applesauce
    • Cheese cracker packages

You can purchase supplies for and make as many Food Focus packs as your family is able to donate. We recommend making 3-4 packs, but making more is appreciated.


Once you have completed the activity please contact 713-818-1579 to make arrangements for drop off.
