Mary's Lunchbox: Teacher joins with church to begin backpack ministry


MEADOWVIEW, Va. (Nov. 29, 2015) -- Becky McKinney will never forget the day about five years ago when she was substituting at the school and she realized that some children may not have enough to eat on the weekends.

A member of Meadowview United Methodist Church, McKinney is doing something about that in her own community by starting a backpack program for students at Meadowview Elementary, and she invites members of the community to get involved.
