Volunteering with Backpack Beginnings

Community Service


BackPack Beginnings Program fights childhood hunger in our community by filling the weekend food gap for children in need.  The program reduces the negative impacts of hunger so children are ready to learn in school and succeed in life.


All food is child-friendly, packaged in four set menus including milks, proteins, fruit, vegetable, cereals and 100% fruit juices.


  • 67% of children enrolled in Guilford County Schools are low income.
  • 19.2% of people in Guilford County are food insecure.
  • Guilford County has no state or federally funded weekend feeding programs for school children.
  • Hungry children incur delays in their physical, intellectual and emotional development.
