Our donors, or 'Buddy Schools' as we call them, ensure that our program is not only sustainable, but also grows in impact every month.
Backpack Buddies currently works with 54 schools in the Metro Vancouver area. We have 16 schools who donate into our program each month, and 38 recipient schools.
Together, we can ensure that no child in our community goes hungry.
Join us and combat childhood hunger today.
