BROWN COUNTY WEEKEND BACKPACKS, INC.

Less Hunger, More Learning!

THE NEED IS SIMPLE:

MANY BROWN COUNTY KIDS ARE HUNGRY EVERY DAY--AND WEEKENDS

In Brown County, 1 of every 5 children lives in poverty, and 1 of every 3 households struggles to afford the basic necessities, including food.

HUNGRY KIDS
STRUGGLE IN SCHOOL

Children who do not eat regular, nutritious meals are more likely to be in poor health and struggle in school. 

For many of these children, a school breakfast or lunch may be the only meals they can count on eating during the week.

BROWN COUNTY
WEEKEND BACKPACKS
FILLS THE FOOD GAP

The Brown County Weekend Backpacks program helps children get through the weekends by providing a backpack containing 6 nutritious, easy-to-prepare meals plus a snack to students in families struggling with hunger.  Eating well on weekends helps kids come to school each Monday ready to learn.

BCWB:  WE TURN
HUNGER FOR FOOD  INTO HUNGER TO LEARN

Imagine the impact we would have on students, families, and our community if every child had regular, nutritious meals every day! 

We hope to see you next year!
