LET'S SEE WHAT WE CAN DO TOGETHER TO PREVENT CHILDREN IN OUR COMMUNITY FROM GOING HUNGRY!

 

What is backpack buddies?

Backpack Buddies is an organization that strives to feed children through the weekend that would otherwise not have food. This ministry is supported by local churches in Pooler and the Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry.


Every Friday during the school year, Backpack Buddies delivers a bag full of food for every child that is signed up for the program. This allows those children to go home from school confidently knowing that they will not be hungry during the weekend. Backpack Buddies currently deliver over 100 bags to local schools in the Pooler area. 


Backpack Buddies meets every Thursday morning to pack the bags of food. If you would like to get involved, please call 912-349-4881 and follow them on Facebook here.
