Houston Food Bank Backpack Buddy Program
Humble ISD has partnered with the Houston Backpack Buddy Program to offer students assisstance each week with a sack of food.
Here is how the program works:
- There is no charge for the food sacks to the parent or students(s).
- Every Friday afternoon at the school your student attends, your child will receive a sack full of nutritious food for the weekend. The food sacks are distributed as discreetly as possible and generally contain enough food to serve one child per weekend.
- Texas Emergency Food Assitance Program (TEFAP) products comprise a large percentage of the food sacks that are distributed to the Backpack Buddy participants.
- The Houston Food Bank welcomes any family who is in need of this assitance. If you would like your student to participate please contact your childs grade level counselor.
