On Friday, we visited Barre Town Middle and Elementary School. We spoke with Carolyn Appleton and six amazing fifth graders who participate in the BackPack Program.

Watch their videos to learn how BackPack benefits their school and learning environment, as well as what foods in the BackPacks are their favorite!

We’re also still in the running for a $45,000 grant to support the BackPack Program, but we need your votes! Visit the voting app to learn more and lend your support!
