Q: How did the Child Hunger Relief Network get started? Backpack Buddies program get started?
A: The Child Hunger Relief Network is the revised and revamped version of the Backpack Buddies Program which started during a mentoring session. One of the participants was identified as facing food scarcity at home. We later determined that his family was actually homeless. After researching we identified Hunter Elementary as having the greatest population of homeless and impoverished children in Wake County.
Q: How does the Child Hunger Relief Network work?
A: The students who have been identified with the need are provided with a backpack every Friday. The backpack contains seven meals that they can take with them. They must return the empty backpack to be refilled on Monday. Volunteers gather at the school once a month to sort the food so it is easier to pack the backpacks.
