Breakfast with the Stars benefits the Tarrant Area Food Bank BackPacks for Kids weekend feeding program. Children who receive free or reduced-price meals at school are often at risk of going hungry over the weekend. This program sends home backpacks filled with child-friendly, nonperishable food for about 1,700 school children each Friday.  The 29 BackPacks for Kids sites are in three counties.

Sponsorships for Breakfast with the Stars will help the BackPacks for Kids program provide kid-friendly food for the neediest children at 29 schools. On Friday afternoons, these children take home unmarked backpacks of food to supplement their meager meals on the weekends. See Sponsorship information.

Donations may be made by credit card online or by calling 817-332-9177, ext. 132 or mailing a check to Tarrant Area Food Bank.
