We stop in with Jack at Ingle's in Spartanburg.
This entire effort is designed to help feed hungry school kids in our area. Many children are forced to hide food from school cafeterias to take home since they don't get enough to eat at home. This Backpack Attack program is designed to provide a backpack full of food for kids to take home. People will be encouraged to purchase a backpack full of food at any area Ingles location beginning on August 12th. Special Icons will be available to scan at checkout for $7.50.
Ingles is donating the backpacks, and Harvest Hope will be administrating the delivery of backpacks full of food to needy children. It is my understanding that donations will be used to feed children in the areas where donations were received. Thus people can support their own communities.
The issue with hunger in our schools is a real concern in our area.
