Hunger is no stranger to Benson, and Backpack Buddies is one way we can help. Each week, our church prepares 50+ bags of food for students at Benson Elementary who don’t have much to eat at home. On Fridays, the children take home their bags, which are filled with enough food to keep them full throughout the weekend. This is an incredibly rewarding ministry, and you can be involved in several ways:


  • You can help us pack bags on Wednesdays during the school year. We meet at 5:30pm in the pantry next to our kitchen.
  • You can donate food and bring it to the church—click here for a flier listing needed items.
  • You can donate money to our Backpack Buddies ministry; simply make a check out to Benson Baptist Church and put “Backpack Buddies” in the memo line.
