Hunger doesn’t take the weekend off


Become a Partner

Is your church, organization or family looking for a way to give back to your community? Partnership with the BWFP is one way to take your volunteering to the next level. The BWFP is fortunate to have nearly 50 partners who help pay, pack and deliver food to students during the school year. However, we still have students who don’t have a partner. If you are interested in learning more about sponsoring a student(s) through partnership, please contact: [email protected].

What our partners are saying...

"Our church's participation in the BWFP has allowed us to strengthen our tie to, and support for, our "neighborhood" schools and is heartily approved by our congregation!"

"[Our] church became involved with the BackPack ministry decades ago. [Before joining the program] shopping the grocery stores and attempting to put together a menu to be distributed to children in need [became] a difficult and costly task. The BWFP has offered the opportunity to provide a more nutritional menu at wholesale costs. BWFP also acts as the liaison between us and the school, allowing us more time to address other ministries."

"We felt the BackPack Program was a great mission program for our church. It brought members together for fellowship with one another, plus accomplished our goal for community outreach."
