Organizations We Support
Many children in Metro Vancouver’s inner-city schools go home to meager or no meals on the weekends. They are deprived of nutrients and are at risk for serious health problems and learning complications.
Backpack Buddies bridges the weekend hunger gap for just under 3000 children in Metro Vancouver each month. On Friday afternoons, backpacks are filled with food for children in need to take home for the weekend. Children at “Buddy Schools” (donor schools) raise funds, purchase food, and pack each bag for a child who needs it – it is a “kids helping kids” model.
FreeYumm has been donating bars to the program each month since 2016. Join us and combat childhood hunger today. Visit backpackbuddies.ca
