Backpack Buddies

 Many students in Vancouver’s inner city schools who rely heavily on free or reduced-priced lunches during the school week go home to meager or no meals on the weekends. Backpack Buddies is a unique local non-profit initiative with the goal of eliminating this issue. They provide nutritious food parcels to children in need at inner city schools on Friday afternoons to take home for the weekend. Their motto says it all – Because Hunger Doesn’t Take the Weekend Off.
