Armory Programs - Operation Backpack

The second program is Operation Backpack. Operation Backpack sends six complete meals home with kids who live in a food insecure home every Friday, so they will have enough food to eat over the weekend. Food insecurity is a big deal: 11.1% of kids in Illinois are going home to food insecurity, and 13.3% of kids in Warren County are going home to food insecurity. Approximately 83% of kids in the Monmouth-Roseville school district are going home to food insecure homes.

Operation Backpack serves meals for the weekend to school children from food insecure homes.
