There are now many programs in place to help with school lunches and even breakfast, but what happens when those children go home for the weekend? That's where the BackPack Program comes into play. Feeding America has a great new program for those families in need to help fill in the gaps on weekends and school breaks. The concept is simple, "Pack 'Til They're Back" supplies food to keep those bellies full until they come back to school again. The program works by sending them home with kid-friendly nutritious foods that are easy to open and prepare on weekends and school vacations.
Watch this video to learn more about the BackPack Program and what it means to the families who need it. Meet Wanda and her family.
