School Breakfast

It's foodbank week here at the CBC and I got the pleasure of doing a number of stories about this vital service.  Here's the first - most people know how foodbanks work - people donate food, the food gets collected at the warehouse and then given to needy people.  But as I discovered, that's not all there is to it. 

For instance, did you know that schools all over BC also have food banks, and free breakfast and lunch programs for students?   As I discovered, the real charm of these programs is the way they try to ensure that needy kids get a good meal without other students knowing who they are.  Hot Meals  icon_video.gif
