Backpacks for Kids Port Townsend

Who We Are

Backpacks for Kids Port Townsend distributes kid-friendly, non-perishable food to food insecure children at the elementary and middle school level. These children are eligible for school breakfast and lunch programs during the week, but without our help, they would often go hungry on the weekends. We send enough food for three meals and several snacks home with them on Friday afternoons.

We get together every Wednesday during the school year to pack the food. You can find us at the Port Townsend YMCA at the Mountainview Commons - in the space where the Port Townsend library was housed during the main library's renovation (under the swimming pool and gym).

What We Do

We are a group of volunteers who raise money, purchase food, and pack food to send home on the weekends with food insecure children in Port Townsend.
