O’Hara resident Bonnie DeMotte spends a lot of time at the grocery store.

Bonnie DeMotte packs for needy Children in the Fox Chapel Area School District to take home with them for the weekend.

She has to — considering she feeds more than 160 children each week.

The Fox Chapel Presbyterian Church parishioner is vice president of the Backpacks for Hunger program, which provides needy students each week with soup, snacks and sandwiches to stave off hunger for the weekend after they leave school.
