I would like to help
End Child Hunger


Providing backpacks throughout Brazoria County with nutritional food and snacks

to children who are going hungry for food 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 700 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 780 children during the 2023 summer.
