    During the 2012-2013 school year, the BackPack Program will help 16 schools to provide 650 children (elementary, middle and high school) enough nutritious food for nearly 130,000 meals throughout the year.

    Citizens Bank Foundationís donation will provide the support needed to expand the BackPack program to two more schools this year. The donation will be distributed throughout the state.
