There are 40,000 kids who face the risk of weekend hunger in Washington State. Every child deserves to eat on the weekend.

Just $7 feeds one child for the entire weekend.

We END Weekend Hunger
for Kids in King County and Beyond

The reality is that many students rely solely on the sometimes-free breakfasts and lunches provided at school. So on weekends and breaks they experience food insecurity from Friday lunch to Monday breakfast.

Backpack Brigade delivers weekend-hunger relief every week of the school year. Our community of volunteers pack thousands of bags of kid-friendly, easy-to-cook food and deliver them to schools in Seattle, Renton, Highline and Bellevue where they're distributed by school staff to students in need. We are strengthened by small donors who believe every student in King County deserves a hunger-free weekend.
