Becker Backpack Buddies
Backpack Buddies’ mission is to reduce the effects of childhood hunger by providing nutritious, easy- to- prepare meals over the weekends to children in food-insecure homes in the Becker, MN area. The idea is to close the hunger gap that currently exists and to raise awareness that this problem really does exist in the Becker community.
We hope to accomplish this by bringing the businesses, faith based organizations, schools and community members together with a common
goal and mission.
Currently this program reaches 210+ students weekly in all four Becker schools. Our goal is to ensure that we will have this program running year after year. We cannot do this project alone. We need help from people like you!
Currently this program is run by Becker Area Ministries and community businesses.
