Backpack Ministry Working To Keep Bibb County Students Fed

Brenda Lambert's Backpack Ministry helps feed over 1,700 students each week.

In a WGXA report, school counselor Lakeshia Williams says, "Our schools provide a nutritious breakfast for students each morning," she said. "Also a very nutritious lunch and snack. Often times our students need additional nutritional support on the weekends."

This is where the Backpack Ministry comes in.

Lambert says not only does the Backpack Ministry offer food, but also a friendly face so the students know even strangers care about them.

"We don't just drop the food off at a school, we physically put the food in their backpack -- in their own little book bags," Lambert said.
