'Repack the Backpack' Provides Food for Students Over Holiday Break
Over the holiday break many Binghamton City School District students who depend on their schools to provide breakfast and lunch may go hungry. However, thanks to the Food Bank of the Southern Tier and the Broome County Child Hunger Task Force these students will get a backpack filled with food for over the holiday break. On Dec. 7 community members, elected officials and school administrators worked together for the Holiday Legislative Backpack Repack Event. During the event, more than 485 backpacks were filled with canned vegetables, tuna, oatmeal and other items.
