LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - In Tuesday's Hero Central, we took a look at a fundraising campaign that kicked off at Larry's Pizza to make sure kids don't go hungry.
Feed Arkansas Kids is a non-profit organization. They're providing backpacks full of food each weekend for kids whose only source of food is their free lunch program at school.
Sylvester Smith is with the organization and says the need is much great than the resources available. "We start this kickoff fundraising initiative to raise the resources so we can take care of every child who has a need here in central Arkansas," he says.
Smith says the program has been going on for three years -- but they're launching this campaign because the need is so great.
