Campaign Details

The program provides weekend meal packs to children who, because of low family income level, receive free or reduced-price lunch on school days. Each weekend pack contains 6 meals - 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners and snacks for the weekend.

Our goal is to collect enough donations to cover half of our operating costs for the year - $25,000. 

  • For $225, you can provide weekend meal packs for one student for an entire year.
  • For $113, you can provide weekend meal packs for one student for one semester.

But we will gladly take any donation amount!

About the Organization

Our story began in January 2011 when we learned that teachers at a local school were reporting their students had little to eat at home over the weekend and holiday breaks. We quickly responded to this need by launching the Backpack Buddies Program, a volunteer led program providing weekend and holiday meal packs to Loudoun County students receiving free or reduced-price school meals.
