News 4 WIVB-TV/CW23 WNLO, Fidelis Care and Wegmans Food Markets are teaming up with the Feed More of WNY for the 6th Annual Fill the BackPack Campaign to collect food for children in need. From June 2– June 16, Wegmans shoppers throughout the Feed More’s four-county service area will be able to purchase prepackaged bags of food to support the BackPack Program, which helps students who rely on free or reduced-price meals at school by providing them with take-home bags of food each Friday throughout the school year. 

The Fill The Backpack program is in 52 schools and more than 3,500 kids are involved in the program this year.

Customers can purchase a $3, $5 or $10 pre-packed bag at 11 different Wegmans locations. Individual items will not be available for purchase.

Our goal is to collect 175,000 pounds of food that will feed the students every week.
