Backpack Buddies exists to fill the weekend hunger gap for children in Metro Vancouver.
Collingwood is in its 8th year of supporting Backpack Buddies across both campuses and provides over 100 bags of food to needy children every two weeks.
Back in December, Grade 6 students taught Grade 2s about the program. Using visual charts and with the help of the older students, the Grade 2s helped with the packing.
There will be a Backpack Buddies Food Drive at Wentworth Campus, Monday, January 28 - Friday, February 1. View a list of acceptable food items here.
