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.
