Backpack Project Update

TJ Myers
At the September 17 meeting of the Rotary Club of Snow Hill, Club member T.J. Myers provided an update on the Backpack Project. The goal of this project is to provide easy-to-prepare food items for students who might otherwise not have enough to eat on weekends. The Club is in the third year of participation in this program.

Approximately 11% of all households in the United States deal with food insecurity. That number increases in rural areas and in homes with children present. Food collected at the meetings of the Club are delivered to the recipient school each week.
