On the first Thursday of the month, volunteers assemble weekend food sacks through Operation Backpack with Topeka North Outreach for children in need that attend North Topeka & Oakland elementary & middle schools. For some, it is the only food they will have until they get to school on Monday.
Sacks are distributed on Fridays to ensure children have food EVERY day of the week. This program supplements the free and reduced-price meals the students receive so they have food on the weekends.
Age 7 & up with an Adult. Masks are recommended.
