Pack and Give Back

Inspire Your Team and Make an Impact

The name says it all. Through our Pack and Give Back program, community-minded companies like yours can both financially sponsor bags of food for hungry kids and join us to pack them at our warehouse. If you want to engage your employees and build an even stronger, more inspired team, sign up today to Pack and Give Back.

How It Works

Pack and Give Back offers you an opportunity to engage your team, volunteer your time, and feed hungry kids with Backpack Buddies.

Give to Feed Hungry Kids

When your company signs up to Pack and Give Back, you are committing to financially sponsor bags of food. Financial commitments start at $5,000 and hands-on volunteer opportunities are available for up to 25 employees at the Backpack Buddies warehouse.

Volunteer to Bag Food

Bring your team to our 5,000-square-foot warehouse in North Vancouver to volunteer. Together, your team will pack hundreds of bags of food destined for hungry kids across BC.

Be Inspired

We’ll teach your team a bit about childhood hunger and the reality many kids in your own community face. Armed with knowledge, your team will be inspired by the impact they are making.

  • “I can’t stand the idea of kids being hungry. Using my business to make a change in the community we work in just makes sense to me—the more we can do to support and bolster Hope, the better.”

  • “When I first read about Backpack Buddies, I was looking for a kids program that FreeYumm could support. I already knew that underprivileged kids aren’t learning at school because they are hungry and that great programs have been set up to support feeding kids at school. But we forgot to ask ourselves, what happens to these children after they go home? The idea that children live with this amount of anxiety around food – knowing that they probably won’t be fed over the weekend – it broke my heart.”
