Backpacks for weekend food

As a pediatrician in one of the poorest counties in the nation, I see needy families up close and personal. Our food pantry provides food for the neediest children, which is put into backpacks by the school so they have food to eat on the weekend, when they will have no school meals. Children cannot learn and grow up to be contributing citizens without proper nutrition.
