Backpack Buddies

Funded since 2016

Backpack Buddies tackles the hidden crisis of childhood hunger. They provide backpacks of food on Friday afternoons to children who rely on school meal programs during the week, ensuring that they do not spend the weekend hungry.

Why we fund Backpack Buddies 

The fact that food scarcity exists to the extent that it does is appalling to us. Backpack Buddies makes sure kids don’t suffer the consequences of that food scarcity, and they do it in the most effective way possible. We know that $1 given to Backpack Buddies will have at least $4 worth of impact. They are simply great at what they do.
