On a windy day in April, we spoke with Barb Pitfido, BackPack Site Coordinator at JFK Elementary School in Winooski, about what the BackPack Program means to kids on the weekends and vacations.

We even caught the Sodexo team in action. Sodexo staff at UVM pack the Winooski school backpacks and deliver them to JFK. You can read more about a recent BackPack pack, as well as see videos of the Sodexo volunteers, in a blog post from April 7th.
