Hilary Duff Supports Blessings in a Backpack

Hilary Duff was spotted last Tuesday, not in L.A. or New York – but Fort Wayne, Indiana. The movie star is lending her name and her time to the Blessings in a Backpack program. Blessings in a Backpack is a charity that gives backpacks full of foods to underprivileged kids so that they have enough to eat on the weekends. Duff is happy to help and hopes that her name will draw more attention to the great cause. "I think that people might not be aware that a couple neighborhoods away, kids aren't having food on the weekends, and we just want people to be informed and to know what's going on in their communities and to help if they can.”

Blessings in a Backpack started in 2005 and prides itself in helping children’s nutritional needs. Visit www.blessingsinabackpack.com for more information about the cause.
