We believe our partners know best.

We are tremendously grateful to all the teachers, social workers, students, sponsors, donors and volunteers that have helped us build Backpack Buddies to serve kids and their families.

Thank you to our family of buddy schools, sponsors and donors for making this great work possible every week across Metro Vancouver. You are awesome.

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 30 schools in the Metro Vancouver area. We have 13 schools who donate into our program each month, and 17 recipient schools. 


Together, we can ensure that no child in our community goes hungry.
Join us and combat childhood hunger today.
