1 in 5 children in our community don’t know where their next meal is coming from.

This is felt the deepest on weekends when school meal programs and Food Banks are closed. For just $10, you can provide one backpack of food to a child in need. This gift ensures that they will have food for the whole weekend.

We currently have a waiting list of schools in need of Backpack Buddies’ support in 2019 to combat the weekend hunger gap. With your help we can take schools and students off the waiting list and put them on our Friday delivery route.

When you make a donation to Backpack Buddies, you are joining hundreds of donor students and teachers across Metro Vancouver who generously support our programs through fundraising and volunteering.
