Winter Haven, Florida -- Every Friday at Wahneta Elementary School in Polk County, these special backpacks need to get stuffed.

Agape Food Bank, through Catholic Charities, hands out nearly 150 SmilePak Backpacks every week, all loaded with nutritional food.

Every student at Wahneta participates in the Free or Reduced Lunch Program and feeding these young minds seven days a week makes sense.

Yoel Saucedo's father is sick, his mother works and his brother helps out as much as he can. So bringing home some extra food every weekend really helps.

"I would say thank you very much because I'm very happy to them to bring the food for us for our family, that we couldn't afford," Saucedo said.
