Help us feed more kids this school year! On any given day, about 5,000 children are hungry in Southeast Texas. The Houston Food Bank's Backpack Buddy program works to fill the gap for children who rely on free or reduced-price lunches during the school year and go home to meager or no meals on weekends.

To ensure quality at each of the hundreds of schools where children get Backpack Buddy food sacks, volunteers are needed for monitoring visits to verify program compliance. Weekday hours are flexible and training will be provided, along with mileage reimbursement. Interested? Contact Toni A. Oplt, toplt@houstonfoodbank.org.
