ALBANY - The "Feed and Read" program returned to Albany for the current school year.
In 2014, the Homeless and Travelers Aid Society began filling backpacks with food for young children in the Albany School District.
The backpacks are sent home on Fridays so the children return to school on Monday rested, fed and ready to learn.
This year, they hope to deliver 625 backpacks every week along with books that children can take home to read.
