Project Backpack is a program is funded through a partnership between Boys & Girls Club of Canada and President’s Choice Children’s Charity. Through weekly grocery packages, we hope to support families to help reduce some of the pressure and stress felt by many in our community.

Project Backpack is a national initiative designed to help reduce food insecurity for young people and their families. Once a week, program participants are given a food-filled backpack to bring home, with nutritious food that they can easily assemble into healthy meals over the weekend or during time periods when Clubs or schools are unable to provide meals.
