Back to school brings worry, stress – and for as many as 1 in 3 children – the risk of hunger. Those hit hardest by the pandemic haven’t recovered, and as the school year starts, hungry children are at risk of being left behind.
That’s why Backpack Buddies helps to fill the weekend hunger gap - a time when children go without the support of school breakfast and lunch programs - by providing meals and snacks for the weekend directly to those who need them.
Hunger lives in your neighbourhood this school year. But you can help. Just $20 provides a hungry child with a backpack full of food. Give now at backpackbuddies.ca.
