Kennewick, WA-Second Harvest Tri-Cities Thursday delivered about two thousand backpacks to several schools.
ConAgra donated the drawstring backpacks filled with peanut butter, granola bars, and other lunch-time foods.
Finley Elementary School Principal Pam Kinne says a lot of parents will appreciate the help.
"The district itself is about 68 percent in need," Kinne says, "so I think there will be a lot of families that can use the food."
Along with Finley Elementary, Second Harvest delivered backpacks to eight other elementary schools in Richland and Pasco.
