Backpack Buddies of Long Beach

After seeing a story about childhood hunger and other weekend feeding programs here on the Coast, the Backpack Buddies program in Long Beach, MS was formed.  We are partnered with the Long Beach School District.

Through Backpack Buddies, we provide bags of individually wrapped food items to be taken home on Fridays by students who may be facing food insecurity issues.  Students who are invited to particpate in the Backpack Buddies program are recommended by teachers, counselors, and principals. 

We have five churches who actively support this program with financial donations and time.  They are: First United Methodist Church of Long Beach, Christ United Methodist Church, First Baptist Church of Long Beach, Grace Lutheran Church, and St. Thomas Catholic Church.  We also have community groups and businesses who donate time and money to the program.

We pack bags at our church every two to three weeks that are then delivered on Thursdays and Fridays to the schools.  We currently serve just under 100 students in all five of the Long Beach schools.
