What Will You Do?

There are so many ways to make a difference with Backpack Buddies. Explore the options below and help us feed hungry kids.

Give in Memory

We are privileged to partner with people as they honour the lives and legacies of loved ones who have passed on. We will help you set up a private donation page for you to encourage others to give to Backpack Buddies in memory of your loved one.

Pledge your Birthday

Celebrate your birthday with Backpack Buddies by inviting your friends and family to make a donation in lieu of gifts. With your own donation page, tracking gifts and saying thank you has never been easier.

Give in Honour

Make a gift to Backpack Buddies in honour of someone special in your life. We will send them a card letting them know that a thoughtful gift has been made and that they are a part of helping to feed hungry kids.

Rally your Community

Biking up a mountain? Doing a read-a-thon? Rally your community around your project to feed hungry kids. We’ll tee you up with a personalized donation page so you can achieve your fundraising goals.

Host a Virtual Food Drive

Host a virtual food drive through Nourish & Flourish, our online marketplace. Shop online to fill bags of food for kids in need and receive a tax-receipt when you check-out. Collaborate with your family and friends and we’ll tally just how much you have raised together.

  • “I grew up in a single-parent family in Northern BC in the 80s and had a very hard-working mother who often was working two jobs just to get by. Even still, we were often in the situation of having not enough food in the fridge. Being a small kid and being hungry is hard and can be embarrassing even though it’s out of your control.”



  • “I can’t imagine what it would be like to go through a day let alone a weekend without food. I want to help these families in some way.”
