The music was pumping and volunteers from Earthbound Farms got right to work Wednesday, packing backpack bags that go to local school children each week. The bags are intended to cover the weekend nutrition gap, when school meal programs are closed.
What does it cost to bridge the gap for a student for an entire school year? Less than $100! If you’re interested in learning more, or volunteering to help, just call Community FoodBank at 637-0340.
Community Food Bank’s mission is to provide food, nutritional education and advocacy for our neighbors in need within San Benito County.
