Ways to Help


Would you like to help us pack bags? Just send us your email to let us know you would like to be on the packing email list. We will send you an email with the packing days for the entire school year and include you on the email reminder list.


Spread the word! If you aren't able to help, but know of someone else who would be interested please have them contact us.

Backpack for Hunger has been very fortunate to have so many wonderful organizations and groups approach us with fundraising ideas. We have benefitted from food drives with churches, synagogues, and schools. In addition, many groups have done fundraisers to provide a monetary donation to B4H.


Do you have an ideal location for a Backpack for Hunger collection bin? Are you involved with a group that would like to organize a food drive or a fundraiser? If so, please contact us to discuss your ideas!
