Our eighth year FEEDING HUNGRY CHILDREN, one child at a time!


Hi, and welcome to the site for Galax Backpack Buddies!

What do we do? Galax Backpack Buddies provides a backpack full of  food to kids who don’t have enough to eat over the weekend when they’re not in school. The goal of the program is to provide nutritious non-perishable meals and healthy snacks to children in need.  The need is accessed by school staff of the Galax School system pre-K through grade 12.
