Mission

North East Wake Backpack Buddies provides food to hungry children in our region in North Carolina and enriches their lives by giving them a greater opportunity for growth, learning, and development. Our goal is to provide healthy, balanced meals to children in our community who may go hungry over the weekend. Students we serve, who normally receive a free or reduced breakfast and lunch at school, no longer have to worry about where their weekend meals will come from allowing them to focus on their education.

Weekend food program

Every weekend North East Wake Backpack Buddies(NEWBB) aims to lessen the number of children dealing with food insecurity (1 in 4 in North Carolina) by providing hungry students with a bag of kid-friendly food for all weekend meals and snacks. These students are identified by counselors and teachers as food insecure. Currently, NEWBB works out of 4 pantries and serves 450 plus students weekly at 18 local schools.
