Bucks Knocks Out Hunger is only 4 Weeks Away!
In case you hadn’t heard, Bucks Knocks Out Hunger is entering it’s 7th round on June 21st and this year BKO Hunger will be bigger than ever! This means we only have a few weeks to raise money and get more volunteers and advocates involved.
This year we’re going to raise $85,000 and pack 150,000 meals and we can’t do it withoutYOU! If we reach our goals, we’ll be able to supply food pantries with even more nutritious meals, eggs, and dairy. We’ll also provide even more fresh fruits and vegetables to those in need in Bucks County, through three mobile farmers markets for low-income residents, called Fresh Connect.
We hope you can make a donation to BKO Hunger this year. Right now, 16% of all children in Bucks County are food insecure. The summer months can be tough (no school lunches and donations to food pantries drop).
You can help! Through BKO Hunger, $20 can provide 80 meals, 40 pounds of fresh, local produce — or a little of both!
Thank you to our 2019 BKO Hunger sponsors!

Coming Soon: Stuff the Bus August 2019
Here in Bucks County, about 20,000 kids struggle to have their basic needs met. For these kids, things we may consider ‘basics’- like back to school supplies – can be hard to come by. That’s where Stuff the Bus comes in.
This year, our goal is to provide 3,500 backpacks stuffed with all of the things students need to start the school year right.
