Supporting:

Backpack Buddies is a charitable organization that puts hope back on the table for hungry kids across BC. The ever-increasing cost of rent, household expenses and childcare has created an affordability crisis for families. One in eight families experiences food insecurity. For those that depend on school meal programs to help feed their children, the children often do not eat enough, or don’t eat at all, over weekends. Every Friday, Backpack Buddies delivers bags of food to thousands of BC’s most vulnerable children. They ensure that kids have the meals and snacks they need to last the weekend and beyond. The weekly food deliveries are coordinated in partnership with teachers who advise them on the needs of their students and identify children who will benefit most from receiving a bag of food for the weekend.
