Food Bank for the Heartland
November 23, 2010

I have been working with the Food Bank of the Heartland and their backpack program for the last year with the elementary school that I work at. I have been impressed with the helpfulness of the food bank employees and the volunteers that deliver the food to my school each week. We have many students that benefit greatly from the program, and would be without food on the weekends if this program didn't exist.
