Backpack Buddies

Backpack Buddies exists to fill the weekend hunger gap for children in Metro Vancouver.

Many children in the Lower Mainland’s inner-city schools, who rely heavily on free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch programs during the school week, 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 addresses this problem by putting much-needed food directly in the hands of the children who need it, sending food for the weekend home with the children.

Fresh St. Market is so excited to help this great cause with our BACK 2 SCHOOL promo! From August 23rd to September 19th, a portion of proceeds will go towards Backpack Buddies. See poster below for details.
