Volunteers with 31 Backpacks in Hancock were busy unloading food Thursday into the Glad Tidings Assembly of God.

That food, along with another shipment this weekend will be organized into packs that will then go to the more than 200 at risk kids in their program. 5,400 meals total will be donated to help feed students and their families over the spring break holiday.

“Nine days without food is unacceptable,” said 31 Backpacks vice president Melissa Maki. “So we're happy to be able to do this, we're happy to be able to afford it, and we're happy to have so many people come out and lend us a hand.”

If you want to help organize the meals, go to the Glad Tidings Assembly of God in Hancock, Monday, March 18 at 5:30 p.m.
