POCAHONTAS - The Pocahontas Public Schools’ Weekend Food Backpack Program has been helping numerous students for 10 years and continues to this school year with the help of local food and money donations.
The program is currently helping out about 150 students in all four of the Pocahontas schools from kindergarten to 12th grade and is funded solely by donations. According to Shannon Barr, who helps oversee the program, the program is completely confidential and no one including the school principals knows who receives the backpacks.
