Backpack Buddies exists to fill the weekend hunger gap for children in Metro Vancouver.
Everyday, thousands of children in our communities are going hungry. While school breakfast, lunch and snack programs are actively addressing this crisis, the weekend remains a difficult time for many families.
We know that when a child is given a backpack of food on Friday afternoon that’s full of meals and snacks for the weekend, they return to school on Monday morning ready to learn.
For just $10, you can fill the weekend hunger gap for a child in need in Metro Vancouver.
