In the small town of Clyde, TX, where most of the population live at or below the poverty level, the Backpacks for Kids program is making a difference. The program identifies food insecure kids with the help of their school system and discreetly delivers a backpack of food full of nutritious, kid-friendly, non-perishable items to these children each Friday. Rachel Laughlin connected with the Food Bank of West Central Texas in 2008 to start the program in Clyde; as of 2009, the overall program serves over 550 children at 23 locations in west Texas.
