The Houston Food Bank has started delivering directly to Katy ISD as the district is centralizing the distribution of Backpack Buddies to all of their elementary schools for Food Insecure Children in the Katy ISD in 2022. MESA-OUTREACH will no longer be partnering with the HFB to distribute these since Katy ISD has centralized the distribution of these for their elementary students in 2022. 

For the past 7 years, MESA Volunteers have delivered these backpacks/food bags on a weekly basis. The teachers, counselors and administration make sure that these backpacks filled with 6 weekend meals and snacks are given to those children who are most in need of nutritional support.  It has been a privilege for MESA-OUTREACH to deliver these each week to:

  • Bear Creek Elementary
  • Schmalz Elementary
  • Wolfe Elementary
  • Mayde Creek Elementary
  • Sundown Elementary
