Kansas City Star and local supporters help educate northlanders about our hungry kids

Kansas City Star features Feed Northland Kids!

The 816 insert for the August 20th Kansas City Star contained an informative article about Feed Northland Kids and featured a local family participating in the program. The wonderful school counselors and social workers who facilitate this program in all sixty schools, witness firsthand the impact BackSnacks have on a child and family.

We’re here to “pump you up” about impacting hungry kids in the northland


Our ongoing campaign of “Where’s Buddy?” continues with this latest picture. Buddy has been making the rounds of our supporters and worked very hard with these owners.  He was a bit challenged on a few of the machines, but gave it his all. Be sure to visit our facebook page and submit your guess. Invite your friends and coworkers to play along.
