This event is a great opportunity to meet new friends and enjoy an evening of fun and help out the Backpack Program. Tickets are $30 per person. You can have up to 6 people on a team and if you don't have a team we'll put you together with some other fun folks. You receive 2 hours of bowling and access to the pizza buffet and soft drinks.

Kids helping kids.

Each week the Meridian Food Bank prepares a food backpack for students that receive reduced-price or free lunches within the West Ada School District. Each Friday qualifying students receive a backpack with enough food for six meals and two snacks to ensure that they have food to eat over the weekend.

The kids in this photo spent an afternoon filling backpacks for their fellow students. Each week the Meridian Food Bank prepares approximately 600 backpacks that are given out to students.

Buy tickets for 3rd Annual Knock Down Hunger

In 2017, the Meridian Food Bank, an all-volunteer organization, distributed over one million pounds of food to help more than 19,000 families in the Treasure Valley.

For just $4, the food bank is able to feed a child for an entire weekend via our Backpack Program. During the 2016/2017 school year, the Meridian Food Bank provided 17,000-weekend food packs to children in the West Ada School District that otherwise would have gone hungry. This school year we are seeing those numbers increase. Thank you for supporting our efforts to address food insecurity in our community.
