River Bend Foodbank receives Kiwanis donation: The Kiwanis Club of Davenport will present a check for $4,000 to River Bend Foodbank at 10 a.m. today.

The money will sponsor the children who receive backpack food at Madison Elementary School in Davenport. The Backpack Program provides children with food to take home on Fridays to get them through the weekend when programs like school breakfasts and lunches are not available.

Currently, the foodbank serves 43 schools and 1,700 of the neediest children in the Quad-Cities.
