Can you help fight food insecurity for Kokomo School Corporation students?

Donate today to the Buddy Bags program.

Together, We Can

ensure no child in Howard County goes hungry.

Buddy Bags are a tool to fight food insecurity for children in Howard and Tipton Counties. Every Friday, qualifying students receive a bag containing enough food for themselves and their family for the weekend. Students are enrolled by teachers and other school administrators to ensure your dollars are going to those who need it the most!


One in five children in Howard County don’t know where their next meal is coming from.

Every dollar counts, but how far does your dollar go?

  • $8 pays for one child’s grocery bag for one week
  • $32 pays for one child’s grocery bag for one month
  • $144 pays for one child’s grocery bag for one semester
  • $288 pays for one child’s grocery bag for one year
