Supporting Houston’s Backpack Buddy Program

Houston TX
UnitedHealthcare has provided a grant to provide fresh produce distributions to kids at eight schools in the Houston, TX. These initial distributions help fill the gap between the summer nutrition program and the school nutrition program. To accompany this grant, UnitedHealthcare volunteers will help distribute food to students at two of the schools in Houston on Sept. 11 and Oct. 9. One in four southeast Texas children are at-risk of hunger, which means they don’t have consistent access to enough nutritious food. Many of these children rely on school meals to provide breakfast and lunch during the school year. During breaks, such as weekends and holidays, many of these children go home to little or no meals. The Houston Food Bank’s Backpack Buddy program works to fill that gap by providing nutritious, child-friendly food for school children to take home over the weekend.  Through the Backpack Buddy program, the Houston Food Bank, works in partnership with participating schools, school district delivery sites, and other community partners, to ensure that the food sacks are distributed to children in need.
