This program began as a project of the Abbotsford Rotary Club. It was brought to Kamloops in 2016 by the Rotary Club of Kamloops. This program is operated as a collaborative effort between the Kamloops Food Bank, SD73, Rotary and dozens of local businesses and volunteers who together ensure 170 backpacks are delivered to school aged children to ensure they have enough to eat for the weekend. These bags are filled with easy-to-prepare, nutritious items and delivered to 18 schools in School District 73 every Friday morning.
