Operation Backpack

http://www.hacap.org/Content/Programs/Health-and-Nutrition/Food-Reservoir/Operation-Backpack.aspx

I just wanted to draw attention to a program to combat childhood hunger in this region. This program was designed to help children who went hungry over weekends when they were no longer in school. The child takes home food in a backpack to get them through the weekend. It started out serving 50 kids in one school and now serves many more. It is sad that it is necessary in this nation and in this state which supplies food to so much of the world.

Mr. Romney, here are more of your 47%.
