The impact of the Backpack Program – a local story from North Dakota

Today, we were fortunate to meet Marcia Paulson, Director of Marketing and Development and Cari Drees, who leads the Community Events and Communications for the Great Plains Food Bank (  During a tour, as we weaved in and among the volunteers, they shared with us several stories of how those in need are helped on a daily basis by those who are fortunate enough to be able to provide.  They told us about one of the many successes that was provided through the backpack program – Heather’s Story.

Some people say we’re crazy for riding our bikes from Fargo to Denver.  I say we’re fortunate to be able to do it for this cause, even if it means that there is just one more story like this that can be told.
