Giada's Rock Hill feature to air Thursday on NBC

Apr 13, 2011 7:19:00 AM - thestate.com
Celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis is scheduled to spotlight a Rock Hill schools program that gets food to hungry children on the “Today” show this week, according to the district.

The segment, which focuses on the “Back the Pack” program, is expected to air between 7 and 9 a.m. Thursday on NBC.

“As of this moment, it's scheduled,” Rock Hill schools spokeswoman Elaine Baker said Tuesday. “But if something happens, like breaking news or weather, it may not be on.”

De Laurentiis, a Food Network star and Today show contributor, was in town last month with a TV crew to film Back the Pack in action.

The permanent fundraiser and food drive sends back packs full of food home with some 650 elementary and middle school students on weekends. That's about half of the children school officials say are undernourished.
