Bowling for meals in Hermitage

Posted: Updated:

Do you know where your next meal is coming from? Not everyone in the area does.

That's why the Brookfield BackPack Charitable fund is working to provide children in Mercer, Trumbull and Mahoning counties with kid-friendly food bags to take home on the weekends.

They held their first fundraiser at the 10-pin Alley in Hermitage Thursday night.

"There's 91,000 people that do not know where their next meal is coming from in the counties, and out of that 31,000 are children. So, we do believe that there's a need," said Tracy Plyler, with the Brookfield Backpack Charitable Fund.

The group hopes to implement the program at Brookfield Elementary school in the fall.
