The Mix106 Cares for Kids radiothon benefiting The Idaho Foodbank Backpack Buddy Program online donation portion will be open through Monday. Donate here.

The Idaho Foodbank’s Backpack Buddy Program distributes backpacks to over 2000 children each weekend to provide relief to those grumbling tummies! Unfortunately, the need is much more. Over 10,000 children each weekend go home with nothing to eat. More than one in 5 children are food insecure and don’t know when their next meal may be. By becoming a backpack buddy, you can help to change that!

For only $25/month you can help to fill a single backpack with 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, and 2 snacks.

Every little bit counts, and you ARE making a difference! Be that positive change in these children’s lives; become a Backpack Buddy.
