Busy Saturday at Fred Meyer Brings
In More than 2,400 lb Food, $1,000
March 19, 2023
We are so grateful to Fred Meyer in East Bremerton for hosting yesterday's annual Spring Food Drive for the Brigade, and to all of the generous shoppers and our amazing volunteers who helped out.
The Brigade collected over 2,400 pounds of food and nearly $1,100 cash donations. This will go a long way to helping us fill the Spring Break Food boxes next Saturday!
The community's generosity gives food and hope to those who need it. Thank you for your partnership and support as we work together to fight hunger in Bremerton. The Brigade's work is not done, and we couldn’t do it without you!!!

The Bremerton Backpack Brigade is an all-volunteer operation, and we always need your help!
We are navigating a period of transition to meet the growing need for food assistance for hungry children and families in our community. There are many ways to contribute, but right now we specifically need people willing to serve:
On the board of directors, meeting at least once a month and working on management and projects;
As a public liaison, working on outreach to the public and coordination with other groups and agencies;
As a volunteer recruiter and coordinator, helping to build, organize and support a team of volunteers to make the Brigade run smoothly.
We're a committed bunch that has a lot of fun, and we'd love to add folks to the ranks! Please click below and send us an e-mail explaining your desire to serve the BBB, your background and what you can bring to the organization. Thank you for your willingness!
