Every week, 100 students at Innes Community Learning Center receive packs of non-perishable food on Fridays to ensure they have enough to eat over the weekend.  The Feeding Kids Backpack Project is provided by Open M and is partially funded by a grant awarded by the Akron Rotary Foundation.  Food insecurity negatively impacts a child's ability to learn and grow.
Rotarians pack food on Wednesday and deliver it to Innes on Thursday.  The school distributes it to the children to take home on Fridays.
This service project is so needed that it has been extended to the end of the school year.  Open M Volunteer Link
Thank you to these most recent volunteers who packed the bags!
