Several local businesses that contribute to Osoyoos Elementary School’s backpack program were honoured at Thursday’s meeting of the Rotary Club of Osoyoos. The Rotary-sponsored program discreetly provides backpacks with food each weekend to seven children who need it. Both Osoyoos grocery stores, both major greenhouses and Lake Village Bakery support the program.
