ST. LOUIS - April 10, 2024 - PRLog -- In February, members of the Association Corporate Council - St. Louis Chapter volunteered for a Rap 'N Pack event at Operation Food Search (OFS) benefitting children in need through the Operation Backpack child nutrition program. The event was organized by the Chapter's Pro-Bono Committee.

"Operation Food Search has been providing food, nutrition education and programming to reduce food insecurity for over forty years in Missouri and Illinois," said 2024 Pro-Bono Committee Chair, Essica Zink. "Our chapter is proud to have the opportunity to partner with this long-standing pillar within the community."

Chapter members were able to combine networking and volunteering by working with OFS staff to organize 1,000 bags of food for Operation Backpack to be distributed to the children who are part of the program. The OFS program distributes approximately 6,500 backpacks each week across 15 counties in both Missouri and Illinois.

Since the program started in 2006, Rap 'N Pack has provided weekly sacks of kid-friendly, shelf-stable food to get students through the weekend when school meals are not available to them. Filled backpacks are discreetly given to participating children to take home, enabling them to come back to school on Monday with good nutrition and the focus needed to achieve academic success.

"I recommended OFS because I attended some events there and thought this would be a fun way to perform pro bono service, but also socialize with fellow members," said Cierra Heitholt, Pro-Bono Committee member.
