    The Georgetown Backpack Buddies program serves GISD students at-risk of experiencing food insecurity over weekends, school holidays.

    How do they help GISD Students?

    Backpack Buddies students receive packs of six nutritious, non-perishable food Items, which are packed by BackpackBuddies volunteers, for weekends and school holidays. 

    Following Winter Storm Uri, they worked with the district to support a food and water drive for families who were impacted. 


    "Knowing that students aren’t going hungry over the weekend brings real joy to theBackpack volunteers who consider the students part of our extended families."
