I would like to help
End Child Hunger

BACKPACK BUDDIES

Providing backpacks throughout Brazoria County with nutritional food and snacks for

children who are going hungry over the weekend.

The program fills in the gap where school programs end.

The  BCDC Backpack Buddies program serves 6 school districts within Brazoria County.

The program is based on referrals from school personnel, teachers, school counselors,

or nurses, and identifies the children in need of assistance.

Serving an average of 790 children per week.

Summer Backpack Buddies

During the Summer months (June - last week in July)

A "Buddy Pack" consists of high protein and snacks for ages 4 - 18 years old.

Distribution of "Buddy Packs" will go to families who shop in the Dream Pantry and have

school-age children 4 - 18 years old.  Served over 803 children during the 2023 summer.
