The Food Bank's Backpack program is working to fill backpacks and send them home with students on the weekends, who would not have the means to eat over the weekend.

The program works solely off donations so the Food Bank officials are asking for the communities help to sponsor a child.

It cost $10.00 a month or you can become a Backpack Buddy for $120.00 dollars a year.

"It just benefits them and it benefits the whole community when children love to learn and they don't have to concentrate on growling bellies or what time lunch comes, " Julie Gonzalez, Development Director at Wiregrass Area Food Bank.

To find out more, or help sponsor the Backpack program, call the Food Bank at 334 794 9775.
