Everybody Eats volunteers visited Bangor Savings Ellsworth Branch Tuesday to accept peanut butter and jelly donations for their student food backpack program. In it's fourth year, the backpack program distributes weekend backpacks to Ellsworth Elementary and Middle School students where needed to help bridge the gap on weekends during the school year when free and assisted lunches are not available. Everybody Eats! is a program of Downeast Community Partners.
Bangor Savings collects peanut butter and jelly donations from customers and employees each year and the Ellsworth Branch distributes the donation among several local food pantries and community food programs.
