During the month of September CBS 6 and Fidelis Care invite the community to help combat hunger in our community by being “Backpack Heroes.” During the school year each Friday, over 5,000 students in 188 schools across 20 counties receive bags of food to help them eat throughout the weekend. To sponsor a child for the school year costs only $183, which breaks down to just $6.10 week.
