Backpack Buddies is a national organization which began to provide weekend meals for children of low-income families to replace the school meals they miss during their weekends or extended breaks from school. Each weekend food bag contains enough food for the six-weekend meals plus snacks. All food is non-perishable, individual servings, and easy to open and prepare.

Shades Crest has committed to supply food for Backpack Buddies at Bluff Park Elementary School.
