Nourishing Young Hearts and Minds

Capital District Physicians’ Health Plan (CDPHP) will partner again this holiday season with the Regional Food Bank’s BackPack Program through the annual CDPHP Holiday Appeal. The Regional Food Bank program, which provides nutritious, easy-to-prepare foods to children in need in grades K-6, now serves over 1,000 children in 42 schools across 14 counties. Each Friday, these students receive a backpack filled with food to take home over the weekend. Throughout the month of December, CDPHP will match donations, dollar-for-dollar, up to $10,000. All funds designated for the 2013 CDPHP Holiday Appeal will go toward the BackPack Program.
