All funds raised will support Backpack Buddies weekly food deliveries.

With one in five kids in British Columbia living in food-insecure households, kids often go hungry over the weekend when they aren’t supported by school lunch programs. Backpack Buddies feeds kids in Metro Vancouver who would otherwise not eat over the weekend with a weekly food delivery every Friday.

One of our taglines is ‘kids helping kids’, and getting younger generations involved and aware of the weekend hunger gap is an important step in making a difference, building empathy, and creating a sense of community.
— Joanne, Backpack Buddies Co-Founder & President
