Empty bottles and cans are helping put food into the empty bellies of some Penticton kids.
After a successful launch in April 2017 of Starfish Pack program, Penticton Rotary is back at it again for a 3rd year! Starfish pack is a program which provides backpacks of food to local school aged children and their families on the weekends. The backpacks are packed with food with support from Save-On foods. The packs are then delivered to local pre-selected schools. They are distributed by the principal to children on Friday and returned empty on Monday for the process to begin again. The backpacks contain food to supplement meals for 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners and some snacks.
