"I had a new student who had been sick for several days, and came back to school on a Thursday despite still not feeling well. When I asked him why he came back to school if he wasn’t feeling any better, he said, ‘Mom said I had to come back to school so I could get something to eat. I haven’t eaten since I left school on Monday.’ After speaking with this student, I called his mom and offered some help. Now he is a part of the BackSacks program and his family takes food home from RShelves, our School-Based Pantry." - Westview Elementary School
