Foodlink's annual Fill the Bus is not happening this year, replaced by a virtual fundraiser called Operation BackPack.

The campaign aims to help feed food-insecure children in the Rochester area. Donations will help send those kids home from school with food every weekend.

Josh Wilcox from Foodlink and Jennifer Lyons from Fidelis Care, which is sponsoring the event, joined us on Good Day Rochester. They explained how the need is even greater than usual because of the pandemic and how you can help.
