Our Four Food Programs

Food BackPacks

The objective of our Food BackPack Program is to fight childhood hunger in our community by filling the weekend food gap for children in need. We provide child-friendly, nutritious food directly to children in need over the weekends. All food is child-friendly, packaged in four set menus including milks, proteins, fruit, vegetable, cereals and 100% fruit juices. Food is delivered each Thursday by 150+ volunteers so children have food for the weekend.

Food Pantries

Food Pantries are managed by school and partner agency staff to ensure children with the greatest need have direct access to food. BPB stocks them with fresh food, canned and dry goods, proteins, fruits, vegetables, pastas and rices, breakfast foods, snacks, shelf stable milk, baby food and other food items. Read more>

Snack Pantries

Snacks can play an important role in managing kids’ hunger and boosting nutrition. A well-timed snack can  even out spikes in hunger and provide a much-needed energy boost between meals. To help remedy the problem, we supply thousands of pounds of snacks so that all children are able to focus in the classroom. Read more>

Fresh Food Initiative

Fresh fruits and vegetables improve children’s nutrition, help prevent childhood obesity and may improve school performance. BPB provides schools with fresh produce, including fruits and vegetables, to ensure children in need have access to fresh food. We partner with local fresh food vendors, community gardens, and others to bring seasonal fresh produce to school food pantries.  Read more>

Summer Feeding Program

BPB provides summer meals to kids across Guilford County. In an effort to keep as many hungry tummies across Guilford County both filled and worry free, we provide our food backpack services to multiple locations. Without this option, many children don’t have enough food to keep from being hungry.
