Micah's Backpack, Jacksonville addresses food insecurity in local schools

Currently, 243 children at 8 elementary schools in Jacksonville, Florida are receiving healthy food every weekend during the academic year.
In September, Micah's volunteers began the school year by packing for 132 children and each week school counselors identify more children in need of weekend food and more backpacks are filled.
