    Becky Lamey puts a box full of KidsPaks onto a table Thursday at the Augusta Food Bank. Before the coronavirus pandemic struck in the spring, the food bank gave food products to the Augusta school system and students packed the bags and the bags were distributed in schools, according to Director Rob Moore. But now volunteers pack them at the food bank where they're given out 9-11 a.m. Thursdays.
