Kids Backpack program

The Coastal Bend Food Bank’s Kids’ Backpack program aims to provide children with nutritious food to take home for the weekend. Backpacks are filled with nutritious, child-friendly food and are distributed on the day before weekends or holiday vacations.

How the Kids’ Backpack program works:

  1. Food insecure children are identified by school nurses, teachers or counselors.
  2. Once a week, the student receives a backpack full of nutritious food before the weekend or before holidays.
