Summer Backpack Program

Summer Backpack Program

This summer, BIIN (Brazos Interfaith Immigration Network) is partnering with the Brazos Valley Food Bank to help children in need of food during the summer. The Summer Food Distribution program organized by BIIN in Bryan-College Station aims to provide nutritious meals to children during the summer months when they may not have access to school meals. In conjunction with the backpack program, which distributes non-perishable food to children in schools, we will receive 100 bags of food weekly. In an effort to help children during the summer, we are reaching out to the community to find children who would benefit from this program. The food distribution, which began at BIIN on June 7th, has provided bags of food to over 100 children so far. 

Our goal is to help as many children as possible and with the help of our interns and volunteers, we are one step closer to making that happen. We will continue to try to spread the word about this program by distributing flyers, designed by our outreach team, to various churches and places of business around the area. We believe that no one should have to face hunger alone, especially during the summer months. By coming together as a community, we can make a meaningful impact and uplift those in need. Join us at the Summer Food Distribution event hosted by BIIN and the Brazos Valley Food Bank, and help us spread the warmth of compassion throughout our community.

Set in front of Waverly Dr and behind the Grace Church, our Summer Food Distribution event welcomes individuals from all walks of life. Whether you’re a neighbor in need or a compassionate volunteer looking to make a difference, we invite you to join us every Saturday from 10 am to 1 pm. The bags will also be available for pick up Monday through Thursday between 10 am to 6 pm, if you cannot make it on Saturdays. Our volunteers will be on hand to greet you with warmth and ensure that your experience is both seamless and respectful. For more information, including how to volunteer or donate, please visit or contact 979-393-8228.
