Their mission: Hunger doesn't take the weekend off. Help Backpack Buddies combat childhood hunger.
Donors & Schools
BB's donors, or "Buddy Schools" as they call them, ensure that their program is not only sustainable, but also grows in impact each month.
BB currently works with 30 schools in the Greater Vancouver area. They have 14 schools who donate into their program each month, and 16 recipient schools.
BB provided over 10,925 backpacks of food throughout the 2016/2017 school year.
BB has a goal: to be able to pack and deliver 2000 backpacks every weekend for local kids in need!
Each $10 donation helps Backpack Buddies provide one child in the Greater Vancouver area with food for the weekend: six meals plus fruit and snacks.
