Backpack Buddies of Pooler is an organization that strives to feed children through the weekend that would otherwise not have food. A child's chance for a bright tomorrow starts with getting enough food to eat each day. Getting the food for the energy they need to learn and grow can be a day in and day out challenge. We have a responsibility to our children to give them every opportunity to succeed which in turn will strengthen our communities and our country. 

What We Do....

Every Friday during the school year we deliver 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. We currently deliver over 200 bags to local schools in the Pooler area.

   How We Do It....

We do this with the help of people like you that meet every Thursday morning to pack the bags of food. We are also supported by local churches of Pooler and the Loaves and Fishes ministry. You can get involved with this ministry by contacting us by the information below or finding us on Facebook at Backpack Buddies of Pooler.
